NYIT Professor Supports Japan Earthquake and Nuclear Crisis Relief

Tsuru Project

Yuko Oda, assistant professor of fine arts and founding organizer of NYIT's "We Are One" art fundraiser for Japan earthquake and nuclear crisis relief, participated in memorial ceremonies, March 10-11 in New York City. The events commemorated the one-year anniversary of the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan that left nearly 20,000 people dead and caused a nuclear radiation leak. Pictured are volunteers at a March 11 event organized by the Tsuru Project at McCarren Park in Brooklyn, where people gathered to make origami cranes to send prayers to Japan. The Tsuru Project is a group of New York-based Japanese artists supporting relief efforts through creative, educational workshops.

Oda, who raised more than $21,000 last year, thanks in large part to the generosity of the NYIT community, is planning another "We Are One" art benefit in the coming months.
