ArtBender is 24 hours of creativity and self-expression, happening in and around The Oranges of NJ.
What: An art-making event to raise funds for Arts Unbound programs and promote art in our daily lives and our communities.
Who: Anyone and everyone! You do not need to be an artist to participate. There will be demonstrations, materials, project ideas, and group projects happening that you can join.
When: The 24 hours from noon on May 6, 2017, to noon on May 7, 2017. You can make art any time during that period (or go all night if you want!).
Where: You can come to the Arts Unbound gallery any time during the 24 hours to make art, or you can join a public or private bender hosted by a community member. You can join in from home or, if you feel inspired, host a bender of your own and invite your friends and neighbors to join you!
How: Just make art! It’s that simple. For any length of time during the 24-hour period, commit to being creative. Share your efforts on social media with #artbender. To also raise funds for Arts Unbound, sign up and create a personal pledge page, then ask your friends and neighbors to support your efforts by making a pledge.
We also will be collecting art made during the Art Bender for a silent auction on May 12th to raise additional funds.
Why: To recognize the importance of the arts and to raise funds for the programs at Arts Unbound for people with disabilities and seniors.
