Help raise funds for new community Art Display Panels

From the Arts Council

The Arts Council has display panels that are used by the schools, PTAs, community groups for all kinds of art shows and exhibits, including the Shoreline Arts Festival, and PTA Reflections shows.
You may have also noticed, especially if you've ever had to move them, that those 15-year-old panels desperately need to be replaced. We believe that our community artists and students should have the best displays for their art, they work hard on it, so let's help them show it off in the best way possible.

We're trying to do just that, and you can help us! We've launched a Power2Give campaign to help raise the money needed to replace the panels. The best part about this campaign is that there’s a 1 to 1 match from ArtsFund. If you give $90, ArtsFund will kick in another $90, and that buys us one whole panel!

We're combining this effort with a few others, including a 4Culture equipment grant, and with these efforts combined; we should be able to upgrade all the panels this year if we reach our goal on Power2Give.

How you can help:

1. Donate. Go to Power2Give and chip in towards the goal.

2. Spread the Word. Please share this information out to the parents in your organization via email, and social media.

3. Keep encouraging art! Having our panels get used so often that they've worn out is a great problem to have, and one of the reasons our community is so fantastic. Keep up the good work!

For more information and details on how your organization can use these displays, as well as other fantastic arts opportunities, visit the Arts Council website or call 206.417.4645.
