For the love of art fundraiser
Sunday, February 14th from 4-6:30pm
Join us for a evening filled with love for the arts! For the Love of Art is a fundraiser that will help support the amazing programming we do at the Living Arts Studio. We support the work of artists living with disabilities in an inclusive studio setting. Encouraging creativity, exploration and building confidence through the arts.
The fundraiser is going to be held at a unique, small-batch operation called The Side Project located down the street from our studio in Maplewood. What began as a dream and a side project has now grown into our 100% barrel-aged brewery. Passion, experimentation and patience drive the creation of our rustic Saisons, Wild Ales and Spirit Barrel-Aged Ales.
The event will feature vegetarian chili and cornbread from the Living Room Cafe. They began roasting coffee in the back room of an art studio in Maplewood in 2012 with the goal of creating employment opportunities for adults with disabilities through specialty coffee. Building on its success, ArtHouse soon opened Living Room, a cafe devoted to specialty coffee, food and community. Unique, seasonal, single-estate coffees showcase the flavors of specific regions and farms within a country. They were recently voted #5 on the top 10 best coffee shops by the River Front Times and #7 on the top ten list of best new restaurants by Sauce Magazine.
Along with the amazing food and drink we will celebrate the art created at the Living Arts studio. We will have an auction with artwork created by the artists we work with at the studio as well as other artists in the community. There will also be a raffle for a wonderful work of art.
This is a great evening event to attend before your big Valentine's Day night out. Join us for a great event that supports and amazing studio filled with talented artists of all abilities.
