ArtSeed Annual Letter of Appeal

Dear ArtSeed Friend,

Thanks for being with us as we celebrate our 20th anniversary. Our team of children, artists, and volunteers has been painting oil portraits at various pop up locations. The Peaceful World Foundation sponsored this portrayal of an historic number (131!) of Congresswomen now in office. Juxtaposed with these lawmakers’ faces are images of missing women whose cases are finally being investigated. Come to pay tribute or memorialize someone with us.

Returning ArtSeed alumni such as Bryant Lui, armed with arts-related higher learning, have helped to develop younger minds with Summer Intensive lessons where their art-making grew into a large annual exhibition. Their brain-storming has grown into new partnerships addressing next year’s theme of climate change. Noah Gavrich is teaching 40-plus new ArtSeed students who are afterschool children at Booker T. Washington Community Service Center while reviving ArtSeed’s Studio Residency Program at Hunters Point Shipyard. An individual annual donation from a supporter like you makes it possible for ArtSeed to continue our resolve to never turn anyone away for lack of funds. Take a peek at these photos to get a hint at what we’ve done! Magnify the image below to find the classmate photographers’ reflection. Build ArtSeed’s Legacy Society and help create a sustainable future with your planned gift.

These collaborations, events and meaningful individual connections happen as a result of contributions, both great and small, by our large community of patrons. We invite you to join us as we begin to celebrate our big anniversary. Also, please check out our website regularly for further news and updates. It’s easy to click on the “Donate Now” button and the “Volunteer” button. Receive a nifty hand-made surprise, special invitations, and our heartiest thanks in return for your help as we complete our second decade!  

– Josefa Vaughan, ArtSeed Founder and Executive Director
