Non-Rembrandts chip in for fire victims

Posted By on Thu, Jun 28, 2012 at 4:53 PM

Yesterday, the Indy spoke to Michelle "Nelly" Johnson, artist and coordinator behind tomorrow's We Are Not Rembrandt art and rock show. (See the full story here.) Johnson says the event is still a go, but she's going to donate part of the artwork sales to the Pikes Peak Chapter of the Red Cross.

As we spoke, Johnson was packing up herself from the pre-evacuation area of Manitou Springs, just to be safe. She was quick to note the generosity of friends offering their homes to her, a warmth she's felt since moving here from Minneapolis nine months ago. In that spirit, she wants to give back.

Here's a peek at what to expect: art from Johnson, instruments from Blindworm Guitars and more.
