Hello ArtForward members:
There are two things that I want to inform you about, please feel free to pass it on!RFP RE:art:
The Executive Committee of the NYC Sierra Club has offered to fund the transport of the audience-select "winner" of the show to the Statewide Gala/Fundraiser in June that will be held in Long Island. Part of this event will include an art auction from which a portion of the proceeds will go to the Sierra CLub NY state chapter. In effect, the winner will get an opportunity to attend a dinner and sell their art.
The deadlines have been pushed later. Here is the updated timeline:
