Donate art to help the Haven

It’s an art show to raise funds for The Haven, and — this is rare — writers are included!

The Haven:

There’s No Place Like Home is a benefit to raise money for The Haven at First & Market. The Haven at First & Market is a safe and welcoming place for the homeless and very poor to be during the day.  Showers, laundry, a locally-sourced breakfast meal, computer access, short-term storage, and a comfortable living room are offered every day from 7am-5pm.

The fundraiser:

October 1, 2010 in the late afternoon and evening hours to coincide with First Friday Artwalk activities. Music and performance art will be shown on the stage in The Sanctuary, which seats 300. Art will be hung or staged throughout the 4 story building.

How to help:

You can donate a piece of art or agree to perform on October 1st! We are actively seeking artists willing to contribute a piece of work around the theme of HOME. The interpretation is entirely up to you. We are soliciting works from painters, printmakers, quilters, poets, writers, musicians, potters, etc. We would like to kick off this annual event with an exciting mixture of artists unified by our theme, HOME.

Who to call:
