AIGA Knoxville Gives Back Art Opening
Remedy Coffee - 6:00 PM
We’ve collected a bevy of art from local elementary school students. We’re then taking that art, displaying it within Remedy Coffee, marking each piece for sale. We’ll then take 100% of the money raised, pick a local underprivileged school, buy art supplies, and donate them to the children. Monday through Thursday, the art will be displayed and available for sale. We also have a website dedicated to raising funds, if you cannot make the gallery showing. http://kids.aigaknox.org
