Art 180's Change for a $10
"So we’re asking you to make money — to take a template we’ve supplied (the size of a dollar bill) and to draw, paint, write or use whatever medium you desire to show the kind of change you’d like to see in the community. Then, submit your creation along with a real $10 donation to ART 180. On 10-10-2008, we’ll exhibit all the art pieces in a show at VCU's new Brandcenter. Our ultimate goal is for a 1,000 people to give their artistic and monetary gifts to ART 180. It’s these same gifts that will make it possible for at-risk youth to discover their own voice and creative expression. Will you help us make Change for a Ten?"
