Hi! Prestige Promotions suggested i contact you about a Benefit for the Homeless that i'm producing on July 8th. The Artist, Willie Baronet just contacted me yesterday to let me know he is coming, so this is a big rush and I could really use some help on this - so could the homeless if you have the time to. here's the info! Are you willing to Actually DO SOMETHING to HELP THE HOMELESS? There will be a Fundraiser Concert on July 8th from 7-10pm in the North Park-South Park area of San Diego to benefit the Homeless and the work that Visual Artist Willie Baronet is doing!!! For more than two decades now, artist Willie Baronet has committed himself to a “found” art project of sorts. Whenever he encounters homeless people with signs he finds fascinating, he offers to buy them from them, usually for $10. Altogether, he now has hundreds of signs that represent a diversity of stories from impoverished people throughout the country. In recent years, Baronet began displaying these signs as collages and sculptures in galleries. Though people tend to pay little attention to these signs when they encounter them in real life, they’re confronted with the needs and emotions of those down on their luck and are forced to reflect on the circumstances For more than two decades now, artist Willie Baronet has committed himself to a “found” art project of sorts.
