Re-blogged from Jennie Cotterill are the details for a tribute art show for an amazing, unforgettable CSULB friend and classmate...
The Fabulous Life of Lisa Nguyen
A tribute show
February 6 – 10, 2011

In response to the tragic and untimely death of Lisa Nguyen, her friends have organized an art show dedicated to her exuberant spirit. We are very proud to present The Fabulous Life of Lisa Nguyen, artwork for a larger-than-life artist and friend. This is an artistic celebration of the unstoppable, sparkling, vivacious, and very dear friend we were all so lucky to have. A force-of-nature both socially and creatively, Lisa couldn’t help but develop an enormous network of artistic friends and cohorts.

Creative friends from near and far contribute works inspired by and dedicated to Lisa Nguyen. A wide variety of media and artists will be represented, as well as some of Lisa’s own impressive design work.

Proceeds from the sale of work go toward the Lisa Nguyen Memorial Scholarship
