Tomorrow, May 5th people everywhere will be donating to nonprofits in celebration of Giving Tuesday. LexArt’s mission--building community by supporting, encouraging, and inspiring artisans at all stages of their creative journeys and promoting art and creative pursuits--is as strong and as necessary as ever. Art and creativity bring joy and we can all use some of that.
The one benefit of a shutdown (as I try to find the silver lining in everything) is time. Many on our LexArt Board of Directors have been making calls to members of our community, checking in and seeing that everyone is doing OK. In one of those calls, Carol Pope, a long-time member, captured the impact LexArt has on individuals and the community that is built as a result:
"LexArt means everything to me; they have sustained me for the past 45 years. Without LexArt, I would not have become a painter!"
As you take stock of what is important to you, please consider LexArt in your giving plans. We depend on the generosity of our supporters - from the smallest to the largest gift, every donation impacts our future.
Thank you for being part of the LexArt Community!
Stay safe. Stay healthy.
Interim Executive Director
