Hello Silicon Valley Art Community,
Jane Przybysz, Director of San Jose’s Museum of Quilts and Textiles,
was in a head-on collision in Napa this week end. A driver took a sudden left turn in front of her car, tried to correct at the last minute, and ended up hitting Jane and her husband directly. Their car is totaled, Mark has broken foot and Jane is in the hospital with three chipped vertebrae.
Today, Wednesday, Jane is being fitted for a back brace. Tomorrow she will be released to come back to San Jose.
Many people have asked ARTSHIFT where they can send flowers. Jane and her staff are saying that Jane’s fundraising efforts are going to be greatly curtailed as a result of this setback, so they would love people to send donations to the Museum of Quilts and Textiles, instead of flowers. This is an excellent idea, because, let’s face it, our arts institutions are usually cash-strapped and balancing precariously. In these economic times, some cash contributions to the Museum’s fundraising would be most welcome and lift everyone’s spirits!
As you come by the Museum of Quilts and textiles this First Friday, please leave a substantial contribution. Neither flowers nor art are cheap!

Best wishes for a speedy recovery for Jane and her husband! When you come down for first friday, please do stop by our neighbor, the Museum of Quilts and Textiles, and give generously if you can.
