Jacqueline Bell Johnson

Artist Jacqueline Bell Johnson has been involved with LGT! since the beginning (she is a founder).  Her latest project will occur at Human Resources gallery in Chinatown (Los Angeles) mid March.  She is creating an installation that fills the whole gallery and it will house musician Dorian Wood and his orchestra during five nights of performances.

She has launched a hatchfund campaign to help fundraise.  We hope that you consider contributing and spreading the word about this project.
