So it all started in a bathroom. In February I was honored to be part of local artist Tiffany Glass Ferreira's Shrinky Dink Selfie Campaign. Using social media selfies, Tiffany created tiny portraits of local Richmonders. While checking out the "Best Little Bathroom Show" at the Storefront for Community Design I ran into local do-gooder Holly Gordon, Program and Operations Manager for HandsOn Greater Richmond. Holly and I were checking out our own portraits and chatting with the artist when Tiffany mentioned she wanted to host a show in April but did not have a venue. April 5-12 is National Volunteer Week and I had been looking for a fun way to celebrate. I wanted to find a unique way to honor local volunteers and shine a spotlight onto the hard work they put into our region and its nonprofit organizations.
We are proud to present, Power of Good an art show in honor of HandsOn Greater Richmond and celebrating local volunteers. This collaborative event is offered to the Richmond region and a week long celebration of the power of our local volunteers culminating in an art show on April 11, 2014.
From March 4-March 18th we will be collecting nominations here.
- We are partnering with Tiffany Glass Ferreira to replicate her successful Shrinky Dink Selfie Campaign. Selected* recipients will be transformed into portraits which will be gifted to the individual at the conclusion of the Power of Good Event to be held on Friday, April 11 from 4pm-7pm.
- We are also collecting art from around the community to add to the show. If you are interested please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out the info sheet.
So make some art, nominate yourself or a friend, and honor the region's premier volunteer organization.
*If we receive more nominations than spaces we will randomly select recipients but we will celebrate every volunteer nominated in a prominent way.
