THE STORY:

I wanted to have ArtPrize be the foundation or stage for helping me bring notice to lack of art programs within school systems. ArtPrize is held within Grand Rapids, Michigan so therefore I would like to help out the surrounding 9 counties which include 76 school districts. After all said and done the funds will be evenly distributed to all of the school districts listed below.

I have two girls, Allie and Jenna, in the Grandville School District and every year I go into each of their classes to do art for an hour or so. It is truly amazing how the whole class embraces art and imagination. We are losing this with all the cut backs happening. It's crazy to me that we have this great thing called ArtPrize but yet area schools can't afford art programs in their schools.

I want to partner with everyone to help drive the message home and ultimately raise funds for area schools. During ArtPrize I would like to promote the public to donate as well. In my mind it's a perfect opportunity and stage to bring focus back to the arts. I have been given a large room at the Harris Building to show my piece and bring notice to this cause.
