Recycle Your Art for the Arts
Better when they are together
Non-profit arts groups team-up in first-time fundraiser
A new organization has formed allowing a few non-profit businesses that promote the arts in Butte, MT to pool resources, share ideas, and create awareness through unification in the community. Aptly named, The Butte Arts Consortium, or the BAC, consists of four groups – the Butte Community Concert Association, the Butte Silver Bow Arts Foundation, the Butte Symphony Association, and the Butte Center for the Performing Arts, which is the umbrella association for the Mother Lode and Orphan Girl Theatre.
“Recycle Your Art for the Arts” is the BAC’s first, all-inclusive fundraiser. It’s simple: The public is given the opportunity to buy or sell artwork. For sellers, whether it be one’s own artwork or a valuable treasure one has kept hidden away, he or she can set his or her own asking price and commission. The BAC will sell it in a gallery at the Museum of Fine Arts Butte (MoFAB). If one is interested in expanding his or her art collection, this would be a prime opportunity to purchase beautiful, new artwork.
The art sale is slated for Saturday, May 8th, 2010 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. with free wine, refreshments, and live music from 4 – 6 p.m in the MoFAB building located at 405 W Park S. If you are interested in selling art, please stop by the MoFAB Monday, May 3rd from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, please call (406) 723 – 3602.
