CREHAITIVE RE/VISION Posters – A Benefit Event for Haiti
On Thursday, February 4th, 2010, the Pittsburgh creative community came out for the CREHAITIVE RE/VISION benefit event – an incredible collection of posters representing the group’s response to the earthquake event in Haiti. The posters also shined as an example of the collective support of the greater Pittsburgh community for the relief efforts of the Red Cross, as they came out to bid on these one-of-a-kind designer-submitted creations.
$1,050 was raised and will be turned over directly to the American Red Cross for their continued relief efforts in Haiti.
Ali and Jamie McMutrie joined us for the evening as special guests and answered some questions about their recent activities and their experiences following the earthquake at their BRESMA orphange. We couldn’t have hoped for a better turn out.
I branded the event, curated and organized the poster submissions which came in right to (and beyond) the last minute. Plans are underway for other events where we hope to share this collection again with the public, including the submissions that did not make it in time for the event – stay tuned!
Here is the official gallery of posters in their entirety and a few from the event.
