CARTS for ARTS

Advertisement

Wednesday, Fed 12.
Members of the community are coming together to raise money to assist the the thirteen artists whose carts were stolen last Thursday night.
Jackson Square Artists are a huge part of the local, tourist, and cultural scene. The loss of 13 artist carts is a terrible shock to the artist community.

These carts are specialized tools -an artist studio on wheels- containing easels, paints, brushes, pastels, collected ideas, finished paintings, and equipment needed to present the art. What was stolen also represents years of work, imagination, and talent.
The Jackson Square Artist Colony is unlike any other art scene in the world, and the attack on some of the members injures all of us!!

Please join us for music, food, raffles, and a silent auction. Show up, tell your friends, and possibly get a good deal at the auction- or win a prize in the raffle!
All funds raised will go to the artists

There is a gofundme page for direct contributions, thanks to Cassie Tarr.
