Our Artists in Local Schools

What a treat to see some of our favorite artists — Cecil McDonald Jr., Andy White, and  Kwabena Foli — teaching local students to create artworks that promote self-care and community awareness. You’ll have an opportunity to see the work at our art show on June 1st (and eventually on the fences outside of Manierre Elementary School!).
