OPEN TO ALL
The Big Art Show is open to the entire community. Drop in to see the art and be the first to claim a piece. Art may be purchased on the spot and online.
WHAT IT BENEFITS
Half the proceeds from the Big Art Show go to the Piedmont Arts Fund – the other half goes to the artist.
The Big Art Show will be open for gallery hours from opening on March 16th to closing on March 30th, 2019.
Gallery hours include hands on artistic activities that include cartooning with Marvel Comics illustrator Yancey Labat, silk screening, watercoloring, paper quilts, and more. Make art, see art, and support the Piedmont Arts Fund. See piedmontartsfund.org for the full schedule and sign up for activities.
ABOUT THE PIEDMONT ARTS FUND
The Piedmont Arts Fund contributed $65,000 this year to Piedmont Unified School District. The Piedmont Arts Fund relies on donations through the Piedmont Store and through special events to support art education in all of the schools in the Piedmont Unified School District. The PAF supports art for K-12 students including supplies, music instruction, integrated art, lunchtime art, 2D and 3D art, ceramics, photography, graphic design, band, orchestra, acapella, choir, theater, dance, poetry, film and art books in the libraries. The breadth and depth of these offerings would be impossible to maintain without parent and community support.
