2018 Spring Fundraiser

My Bleeding Heart

March 2018

The ArtiFactory was keenly focused on programming in 2017. We worked to put more programs in place and inspire others to connect with us. That focus has been fruitful; in the past year over 300 people have attended the increasingly popular Art in the Afternoon series. Together we’ve been fascinated by Thia Rolfes’ Folk Art Automata, Fatima Saeed’s dimensional sculptures, and Latif Behroz’s Kindness Wall project, to name only a few.

Life Drawing sessions, generously hosted by Beadology, have become so popular that we’ve added a second monthly session at The Center!

Future plans include Truc Deegan workshops, collaboration with FilmScene, downtown drawing with Jo Myers-Walker, and an exhibit featuring the artists of Art in the Afternoon.

We’re asking for your support so that The ArtiFactory can:

  • Increase class offerings and expand programs
  • Sponsor interactive art experiences
  • Promote local artists
  • Provide honorariums for Art in the Afternoon presenters

 At this crucial time, your donation will help us move forward with these exciting possibilities.

 One lucky ArtiFactory donor will win Robert Yale Richardson’s lovely watercolor, My Bleeding Heart (above). Deadline for submitting a donation and be entered in the drawing is April 12, 2018.

We appreciate your effort to help us serve the area arts community. Thanks for your belief and patronage.

Sincerely,

Dan Cummins

Dan Cummins,

President, Arts Iowa City
