my friend and colleague, gabriel craig, recently brought my attention to the spill smiths, a group of metalsmiths in savannah, ga who are trying to educate the public about the gulf oil spill and support the clean-up. the group's website includes a blog and information about the spill, the project, the makers, and resources. they will have an exhibition including art, jewelry, and video at mr. beast gallery in savannah from november 4-9, 2010. they are also taking pre-orders for their awareness badges which will be part of an installation at the show. (funds raised will be distributed to gulf region charities.)
thanks for reading.
