Mark your calendars for the most innovative (and affordable) way to be a patron of the arts...ART GUMBO Soup Dinner! This week, Thursday, June 21 from 6-8 PM at St. Mark Community Center, 1201 Locust St.

What is it?
ART GUMBO is a quarterly soup dinner that offers a new way for artists to help fund their projects and for art patrons to invest in our arts community. Mixing the localvore movement with microfunding, ART GUMBO pairs local art with local food.

How does it work?
Artists/Creatives submit a brief proposal of their project. YOU are invited to the Art Gumbo Soup Dinner, pays $10  to review the grants, slurp soup, and vote for YOUR favorite proposal.  All proceeds collected go into the ART GUMBO microfund for the night. The proposal with the most votes is awarded the microfund. It's that easy! (Proposal packet it attached to this email...help us to save paper & resources by printing your own copy & bringing it with you to the dinner!)
