The show will consist of new and retro-visions by MAZE WAYZ and other Twin Cities artists. There will be a raffle and a silent auction to raise funds and they will be giving away exclusive ‘Legalize Maze Wayz’ T-shirts to anyone donating the amount of $25 or more! Any donation amounts are helpful and well appreciated! Suggested donation prizes are listed below.
For those of you who don’t know Misael, here is his story…
He was born in the border town of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico and his parents brought him to the United States for a better life when he was 2. He grew up in the Twin Cities and 3 years ago he was deported suddenly to Mexico because it finally caught up with him that he didn’t have US Citizenship. Now 26, Misael has established quite the name for himself down in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico as an extremely talented and sought after artist despite the hardships he has encountered; being uprooted from his home in the Twin Cities and sent to an unknown country where he didn’t have any where to go and he didn’t know one single person.
