here is the list of schools and alum helping...

absolute due date prints need to arrive:
april 15th 2011( week of april 11-15th)

this is the final group list. if you are in and have already are ok and don't need to...however i need to hear back from a few...i know for a fact: ud, uta, san angelo, micd and btw students and adult printmaking group.
we here at btw need 3 prints...2 for the trammel crow and one for the printer for scanning.
i would suggest 2 for each other schools..but as long as each school gets one set of prints i am sure that's ok.
Gallery 555 in detroit is going to have a show of all the prints too. they are closely affliated with CCS. So the students will have two venues thay this prints will be exhibited at. their confirmation letter is attached. this is a great venue for you instructors and adult printmakers too have a show. check them out on google..enter gallery 555.

total edition size approximately 17 if sending 2 prints to each participant.
total edition size 10 if only sending one print to each school.
(remember we here at btw need 3 if possible 2 for sale one for printer)

the size is 8.5"x11" like xerox paper and vertical please..they can be mailed in a large manilla envelope. if you want to mail enough prints for me to mail packets to each university i am more that glad to do that to simplify things..but please keep to size and orientation.

i am so grateful to you all. this year the monies raised will go to the tibetan healing fund and the drepung monastary.
the crow has promised to print a coloring we hope to send some on to tibet again and a few will be on sale in the crow gift shop. unfortunately the chinese are really cracking down on the tibetan culture and are threatening to take the tibetan language completely out of schools...
if a language is lost there go it's people so to say... the tibetan healing fund is the only group that can really get in to help the people, and have people in place.

please no reference to the dalai lama or the tibetan flag or free tibet since if the images contain any of this china will not allow the book in. it also will compromise what the tibetan healing fund can do.
i have attached the original handout and the article about the tibetan school that recieved the coloring books
our blogsite is and has the photos too.

again thank you and tashi delek
happy losar (march 5th, year of the rabbit, year 2138)
