to all of you who helped make our 10th anniversary party such a whopping success. The turnout was just swell, and it was a high-energy evening.Thanks for celebrating with us, for making dollars, for believing that art can create change.
For those of you who wanted to get an art dollar but didn't, don't worry there will be more opportunities (we'll keep you posted). For now, check this blog (http://www.changeforaten.blogspot.com) and let us know which ones you see that you want and we'll let you know if they're still available (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will be continuing to add more in the weeks to come! With a donation to ART 180 they can be yours... AND, stay tuned as we begin planning for "Phase 2."
Now, with 2,600+ art dollars something had to go wrong...well 19 things, actually. In the mad dash to get all the entries scanned, cataloged, bagged, labeled and exhibited, we forgot to pick up 19 impressive little works o' art that were waiting for us at Crossroads Arts Center. For that, we feel terrible. The good news is that ALL of you (even those who couldn't attend on 10-10) now have the chance to see them. They couldn't be a better batch -- diverse issues, incredible talent, true passion. So with a special thank you to teacher Cindy McNamara and her Hanover High Talent, here they are:
