DAMA virtual gallery night fundraiser

Dane Arts Mural Arts (DAMA) will host its first-ever virtual gallery fundraiser event beginning Friday, April 24 at 5 p.m. DAMA will partner with Lussier Family Heritage Center, contributing 5 percent of each donation to the Lussier Family Heritage Center’s education programs, which focus on equitable and inclusive access to outdoor education. When visitors contribute toward murals or small art pieces, they will receive that artwork as a gift for their donation. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, DAMA is moving as much of its programming online as possible, so donors can expect that their support will go toward developing new virtual programming, as well as funding in-person work that will happen when DAMA is able to go back into the community. Donations toward materials will allow DAMA to continue to work on pieces that are in progress as well as replace and restock materials for on-site programming that will continue in the future. The virtual gallery will remain available for one month, with unique, engaging activities for those following along at home to participate and showcase art of their own.
