Art for All Marathon at CSMA

Printed as submitted through email by Ed Marion:

As part of their Arts for All Marathon art scholarship fundraiser (Sep. 28 – Oct 24, 2009), the Community School of Music & Arts has two Calls for Artists.

First, all artists are encouraged to kick-start their creativity and create their own 26-day artistic marathons as part of the Arts for All Marathon. Artists can sign-up here.  Additionally, for those artists wishing to use four feet (wide) of CSMA gallery wall space, please describe in your sign-up application how your project will keep the wall space filled while monetizing your project to raise funds for arts scholarships. Gallery space is almost filled but some slots are still available.

Second, all Ithacans, but especially all artists, are encouraged to make art on the ubiquitous Post-It (or sticky) note, donate it to CSMA from now until October 20, 2009, where all donated art will be hung on the CSMA gallery walls starting Monday, September 28, 2009 and sold on Friday, October 23, 2009 at our Opening/Closing/Purchasing Night Party (5:30 – 7:00pm preview; 7:00 – 9:00pm purchasing). Check out what we’re aiming for:
