“ONEart”
by One Campaign Kansas City
March 3 – 25
First Friday opening March 3rd, 5 - 9:30pm

“ONEart” is an exhibit of works by a diverse group of artists that leads us on a search through the tragedies of disease, poverty and global greed to find those moments of beauty and reasons for hope. The Kansas City chapter of the ONE Campaign invites you to experience the grave reality, intrinsic beauty, and lasting hope of the millions of people worldwide who endure extreme poverty and disease daily. Despite a reality filled with poverty and pain, beauty survives. Its small triumphs are everywhere if we look closely enough. And where we discover beauty, we also find hope for the future.

The exhibit will be held at the Arts Incubator, 115 W. 18th Street, Kansas City, MO, during the March 3rd First Friday, 2006, thru March 25, 2006.

ONE is a new effort by Americans to rally Americans – through a diverse coalition of faith-based and anti-poverty organizers – to fight the emergency of global AIDS and extreme poverty. The ONE Campaign believes that allocating an additional 1 percent of the U.S. budget toward providing basic needs like health, education, clean water and food, would transform the futures and hopes of an entire generation of the poorest countries.

The ONE Campaign was founded by Bread for the World, CARE, DATA, International Medical Corps, International Rescue Committee, Mercy Corps, Oxfam America, Plan USA, Save the Children US, World Concern, and World Vision, and works closely with the Millennium Campaign. The ONE Campaign is supported by Bill and Melinda Gates and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

ONEart is sponsored by LaserCycle, http://www.lasercycle.com/.
