spread the love
Using my art to give back is not new to me. I am always looking for new and creative ways to give back that will be a “win” for all participants: the artist, donors, and recipients. For example, I hold collage workshops at Jubilee Park and Community Center and 100% of the tuition directly benefits the residential community around Fair Park. The first food drive NTFB held at Fair Park during the early days of the pandemic hit me hard. I watched the video of the thousands of people waiting in their cars for hours for that one box of food. I knew some of the people in those cars were my friends in the Jubilee neighborhood. I had to do something. So first I prayed asking God to show me what we could do together. I had just created the red, white, and blue LOVE collage titled Heart & Soul – Made in the USA and decided to use it to raise money for NTFB. This hit all my buttons of being a “win” for everyone.
