Byron T's Move to ArtSpace, NOLA

Can you help fund Byron T's move back to New Orleans and art supplies for his dream of making large sculptures again? After a nomadic several years, he has been invited to join an artist community at the new Bell School ArtSpace in Treme where he'll have a studio apartment. This is HUGE for him, since he has not had his own place in well over 5 years.

Byron's move from Maryland at the end of 2017/early 2018 will require a truck and tow rig for his Lancer. Then he will need setting-up in his new apartment, and it would be great to provide his first year of art materials. 

Health-wise, Byron is coping with very severe COPD. Happily, he has not had to go on oxygen yet, and he has the go ahead to exercise and potentially get Pulmonary Rehabilitation in the new year. He struggles with exertion, but has still got many years of high jinks in him, with luck and the healthful, drama-free lifestyle.

Arts-wise, he can't wait to volunteer and collaborate in his new community back in NOLA, and he is fired up to keep making stuff. Follow him on FB for (typically cryptic) updates.

Move-wise: if someone out there has always dreamed of driving 1100 miles with Byron and his stuff and helping him move into a new apartment - NOW IS YOUR CHANCE! First come, first served, departure date not set, probably around New Years. This is about a three day commitment for the drive, and there will be a day moving stuff on each end if someone can help with that. You can message Byron directly about it.

Byron's friends and family are asking friends and family to help -- in optimistic times, the man continues to marvel at all of you kind people in his life and we are all forever thankful for YOU, Byron's support network. Here's wishing you a wonderful Season and an awesome 2018.
