Stirling and Sue Static presents…
An Art Show and Benefit for Ron Zakrin

Detroit artists are drawn together to help a fellow artist on his road to recovery. On Friday, March 8, 8pm the local art and music community will join forces to raise money for living expenses for artist Ron Zakrin.

The event will be held at THE TANGENT GALLERY/ HASTINGS ST. BALLROOM located at 715 E. Milwaukee in Detroit.(313-873-2955)
$5 suggested minimum donation at the door.

Ron recently suffered a terrible accident back on November 17. Ron fell off a ladder and fell 15 feet onto his back and suffered a severe spinal cord injury leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. He received spinal surgery and continues to fight as he begins his journey through rehab and towards healing. While Ron undergoes rehabilitation, there are many expenses that he will incur. We are hoping to raise money to assist with medical and household expenses. To make his journey as comfortable as possible, he will need an open space addition with ramp and an ADA compliant bathroom. The home he will be living in is older and not ADA friendly at all. With your help we can make life comfortable for Ron and also have the room to do the things he loves most, painting wonderful art and creating music. He is in good spirits and recovering daily at home.

Local promoters Stirling and Sue Static organized this “Art-A-Thon for Ron” art auction and show to help reach the goal of a recent crowd funding page started for Ron. Twenty five artists are donating their original works of art to the cause, many creating art pieces specifically for the event. The art on the Facebook Event Page  is phenomenal!
