Leon Reid IV Studio Disaster Relief

Hi All-

I'm posting this on behalf of Leon, whose studio in Brooklyn was completely flooded with 5 feet of water during the storm, ruining years of his work (and some expensive tools/equipment).  Unfortunately the Hundred Story House was a casualty as well, though we may try and see if it can be somehow rebuilt.  We had just brought it in from the park, where it had a successful 2-month residency, though in the end it may have fared better outside during the storm.

I'm posting a link here that shows the damage done to the studio and Leon's plan to restore all that he's lost, which entails selling some of his artwork.  Hope you will check it out:

Thanks so much,
Julie
