On August 7th, CSU alum Keith Jentzsch was severely beaten by an unnamed assailant while investigating late-night fireworks in his neighborhood. He remains in intensive care, and will face a long recovery. To aid in his convalescence a number of writers and artists in the community are holding a benefit reading and silent auction Friday, September 12th, with all proceeds going to his long-term care.
Besides getting his MFA in Art, Keith was also the Programs and Exhibitions Coordinator for the University Art Museum, and the person responsible for maintaining the gallery during all of our reading events there. We cordially invite you to come out to the event and contribute to Keith’s recovery.
The reading/auction will be held at the Downtown Artery, 252 Linden Street, 6-10 p.m. Readers include Dan Beachy-Quick, Sasha Steensen, Matthew Cooperman, Aby Kaupang and Grant Souders, among others.
