The Art Marathon will be a 24-hour art making session from noon on Saturday, May 16 to noon on Sunday, May 17th, 2015. Participants can join the fun at our studio and gallery, at other participating sites, or at home. Participants join in for as many hours as they can to create art. Participants will raise pledges (per work of art), and visitors are welcome anytime during the 24 -hour period to watch participants at work or to join in. People can participate from home by posting pictures of their work on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #AUartmarathon.
Prizes for the artist who raises the most pledges and for the artists that make it through the full 24 hours!
The art works created will be auctioned on Friday, May 22nd at our gallery. Pledges and auction proceeds will benefit the programs of Arts Unbound.
Arts Unbound is dedicated to the artistic achievement of people living with disabilities and seniors. We provide visual arts training and professional development to help emerging artists to compete on the retail market. By promoting the work of artists with disabilities and seniors, we center their art-making rather than any impairments and challenge the stigma associated with disability and aging.
