Please help us. Volunteers needed, Art Walk, 2016, Fundraiser Benefit

We want to thank all the art lovers who supported the Art Walk last year, Cuenca’s first. And the great news is that we are planning a second one this year. If you weren’t here, then, for our premier open studios El Centro Art Walk, you are in for a great treat. We are going to have to raise money in order to make this year’s Art Walk happen, though.

We will be hosting a fundraiser benefit on Thursday, June 16, from 6 to 9 PM and we really need your talents and support to help with the planning and organization. A wine, coffee and cheese event with a silent art auction and raffle will be held in El Centro at three San Sebas locations—San Sebas Café, Casa Azul and Four Rivers Center for the Creative Arts. Money raised will be used to fund this year’s Art Walk as well as donations of art supplies and books to kids from the coastal areas devastated by the recent earthquake. 

The Art Walk, 2016, Caminata de Arte 2, that we have planned, is a natural progression from its hugely successful premier. We are excited to tell you that the design for this year’s Art Walk is that it will be held over an entire weekend—October 1 and 2, with an Opening Reception on Friday evening, September 30, at the Mayor’s Gallery. The vision is that it will exhibit the creativity of not only visual artists but also artists in dance, music, theater, poetry, improvisation and more. 

So, please contact us if you can volunteer to help us with the June Art Walk fundraiser benefit. And please spread the word. We would be grateful for your support. All the best.
