Building Community Through Art
Join us for the Pagosa Springs Arts Council Mosaic Project, “Building Community through Art”. This project will provide free 6 X 6 blank canvases for area artists and community members to create their own unique piece of art. We will then collect, assemble and exhibit the canvases into one large mosaic. This display will be at a few locations in town followed by a reception at the Pagosa Springs Arts Council in August where we will disassemble the mosaic. For a $35 donation (raffle ticket) you can join “Building Community Through Art” and receive one of these masterpieces to start or add to your own art collection.
All fundraising through this project supports the Pagosa Springs Arts Council scholarship program, arts education, and public/community art.
Now: Pick up a canvas from Two Old Crows, Belvedere Arts Studio & Gallery or an Arts Council Board member.
