In a time where big box stores threaten local economies, holidays have become the battle ground for sustainable growth in our communities. Instead of gifting iPads and other popular branded store- bought items, what about gifting hand crafted art? Our anniversary event, will provide an opportunity to gift a one of kind present.
For the last two years, BxArts Factory has held on exhibition an amazing collection of 12x12 pieces created by talented artists from the Bronx and beyond. We are fortunate enough to have a few pieces left, but we must return unsold pieces to their creators soon.
Our 12x12 pieces will be available for purchase during our Anniversary event. Each purchase not only supports a local artist and a local economy, but it also contribute to our fundraiser goal for 2017 and bringing arts programming to local community members.
Do something sustainable.
Buy something beautiful.
Bring art to your home and to homes of your neighbors.
Bringing Art to Every Household.
