Saturday, January 19th, two days before the Inauguration of President Obama, EarthWE will host an important, innovative pre-Inaugural “message to the President” event in support of environmental groups fighting against global warming and aiding victims of Hurricane Sandy.

“A Green Term, Mr. President” is a free event to bring people together in a festive atmosphere from noon to midnight. The evening features the Grammy Award-winning world fusion rock group, Ozomatli at 7 pm, followed by two exciting spectacle performance groups, Nudigenous Performance Art and Kaya Experience, plus Jon Marie Mack’s Auradrone feat musical celebration and the band Love in the Circus, with DJs Imagika and Stephan Jacobs elevating the dance party to Inaugural-best levels.

Earlier in the day 100 local artists will paint on 100 canvases their vision of a Green Term. Proceeds from the paintings will go to benefit environmental groups and Hurricane Sandy relief. A number of influential artists will be taking part in the live painting, including some of the well-known CBS graffiti artists such as Mear One, Bleek, Ryoe, Dycpher, and Owie, in addition to other celebrity artists including Plasticgod, Septerhead, Tuckercash, Angry Panda, and more. All of the “Paint The World You Want” paintings created at the event will be exhibited at an official invite-only after-party hosted by art LA at Bergamot Station on February 12.
