Art for a cause...raising funds for art education in the schools

This weekends Celebrate the Arts that I'm participating in is more than just an Fine Art Event.  ITS about raising money to bring Art to the community. ITS about raising money to help bring art education to the schools via the Village After School program in the MUSD elementary and middle schools.  ITS about Pallete Grants, mini-grants to SGV area schools for in class art education projects.  You can learn more about what the Monrovia Association of Fine Arts does on their website HERE.

At the Celebrate the Arts we have a few things going on that are dedicated to funding our various art programs in the city.  The biggy is the Silent Auction of donated pieces where 100% of the proceeds go directly into the grant funds.  All of the artists (well most of them) in the Celebrate the Arts donate a piece for inclusion in this auction.  Monrovia High School done in the Orton style is my piece being donated to the cause.

Celebrate the Arts will be held in Monrovia's Library Park the weekend of October 8 &9 2011.  The library address is 321 S Myrtle Ave, Monrovia CA to help you find it via google maps.  Celebrate the Arts will be open 10AM - 6PM both days.  Come enjoy the art and of course bid on the Silent Auction Items that strike a spot in your soul.
