Art Lovers Show BIG heART in Rose Park
2016-02-04 · By Editor
It’s called the “Big heART” show. More than 20 artists—including some who’ve had tough times—will exhibit their art, sculpture and photography. This year, host Tim Scanlan of Long Beach Skate has arranged with Pizzanista’s founder Salman Agah to offer delicious pizza as part of the evening. Each slice purchased goes directly into Rose Park Neighborhood Association’s Youth Fund.
Last year was had an incredible experience for the fundraiser. As a result, seven at-risk youth were able to participate in a 3-week workshop and their work was exhibited at the Open Studio Tour in Long Beach. This year, the Rose Park Neighborhood Association is planning to “Fabricate” a workshop model based on repurposing materials for sale to further develop Art as Trade for at-risk youth here in Rose Park Neighborhood. And later in the year they will offer an open studio class — Mosaic Community Building experience — again with a focus on local youth.
Show up, hangout, enjoy great art – and bring your wallet!
