Artists Help Save DC's Cherry Blossoms

Recently, a dozen local artists took to the tidal basin to create their interpretations of the cherry blossoms. Those paintings would eventually pay off. PROJECT:Arbor Day hosted by local artist Don Patron at District was an art show auction that raised money to help save the blossoms damaged by recent snowstorms. The event was a huge success.. $11,000 raised for the Trust for the National Mall to go towards rehabilitating the  trees.
