Final Look: TKU Charity Show at Angel City Brewery
On the list of people that receive charity, Tibetans rarely make it. Despite their shrinking population and cultural genocide, most people are unaware of the Tibetan plight. This lack of awareness is exactly why The Karma Underground or TKU assemble. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to raising awareness and funds to support the people of Tibet. On August 8, the group organized, “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou,” a silent auction and exhibition at Angel City Brewery in Downtown LA.
The exhibition marks the second annual charity show for the organization (covered by 12oz Prophet). Artists from around the world donated artwork with proceeds benefiting Tibet House US. By serving as both a cultural center in New York City and as an online global resource for Tibetan civilization, the organization aims to promote and preserve Tibetan culture.
“Oh Brother, Where Art Thou,” will be up until Aug 29, so if you’re in LA and feeling charitable check out TKU’s exhibition come down to the closing party. To learn more about the show and organization visit The Karma Underground’s website.
