    Yes, this social forgetfulness is exactly what I am trying to overcome with THE ARTIST RELIEF PROJECT. It was also the subject of a recent article @ http://newamericanpaintings.wordpress.com/2013/01/31/art-for-sandy-relief-a-closer-look-at-the-artist-relief-project/. I created The Artist Relief Project to help raise funds for and awareness of artists affected by Hurricane Sandy. Yesterday, we launched our second project, an art print with 40% of the proceeds pledged to New York Foundation for the Arts Emergency Relief Fund. It is available here: http://ArtistReliefProject.com.

    I remember something similar happening after Katrina. I was in college at the time - so many service trips were going down to NOLA. But then just a couple years later, even when there was still lots to rebuild, the trips stopped. I admire organizations like the Cal Corps Public Service Center and your own for making a long term community commitments well after the storm.
