The BIG Day of Giving is a 24-hour donation drive for non-profits on Tuesday, May 6th! Donations on this day will be matched both locally and nationally! Mark your calendars, and plan to come to the art center for special activities, food and other refreshments. We will be open from 10:00am-7:00pm. Special prizes for donations will be given this day!
GOALS: Our goal is to raise $5,000 this year and increase awareness of our gallery/art center in Old Town Elk Grove, the only gallery in our community that reaches out to artists and art lovers alike.
EVENT PLANS: We will be open on Tuesday May 6th, from 10:00am-7:00pm, and will feature free tile glazing for anyone who comes in to donate to our center that day.
We will also be offering several prize challenges in the form of free art by well-known regional artists to the FIRST donor of the 24-hour period, the LARGEST donor of the 24-hour period, and one MYSTERY donor!
"Our mission is to provide a sustainable art center in Elk Grove where local artists can display their work, where the public can attend art lessons and workshops, where local schools can enrich their curriculum through field trips and hands-on activities, and where local art events and meetings can be held."
We hope to grow our art center and reach more people in Elk Grove through events like our 2nd Annual Fine Art Competition in June, our 3rd Annual Art Tour in September, and the Big Dayof Giving on May 6th. We also hope to attract more members to join us in our mission to let people know that art is alive in Elk Grove!
