FUNDRAISER to continue supporting Community Arts Depot
Please consider supporting this awesome new group, Community Arts Depot, which has formed a couple of months ago, with a focus on providing much needed artwork storage, with initial goal to focus on Studio 526 artists who wish to store work with the Depot, plus support storage of a Skid Row artwork collection going back to 1999-2000. Here’s what the main storage unit looked like as work started coming in. 🙂
