We Are Juxt (Juxt) and Olson Kundig Architects (OKA) present “Be Mobile: Fundraiser for Food Lifeline”
One Night Event Only July 19, 2012 Juxt and OKA are presenting a showcase of mobile device photographers and artists from around the world.
A gallery of photography produced on mobile devices will be on exhibition on July 19, 2012 beginning at 5:30 PM, with live music and a wine tasting until 7:30 PM, to raise money for the Food Lifeline Food Frenzy 2012 campaign to feed local hungry children when school meal programs are closed. The showcase is a one night only event. Artists have donated their works to sell, with proceeds going to Food Lifeline.
Our goal is to provide exposure to the art while raising funds for a worthy cause. This will be Juxt’s third gallery show this year since their inception in January 2012. With over 300 people attending their mobile photography exhibit opening in January, they have grown to over 500 mobile photographers in Seattle and have gained a following of 701k followers through their social networks. They are excited to share with their international audience their local philanthropic mission.
The event will feature a $10.00 wine tasting with award-winning wine from Sozo Friends and live music donated by local musicians. For more information, visit www.wearejuxt.com.

We ask you to not only come to the event but to help us promote the fundraiser to your colleagues, friends, and family. Every dollar we make provides three meals to children in the Puget Sound area. Our goal for the show will be to raise $1000 through sale of photographs and donations solicited by an ask from a member of the Food Lifeline team.
Again without you we would not have gotten this far and we look forward to a fruitful journey with you all.
