Calling all Artists and Performers!
We need art donations and live performances to support DREAMers of Cal State San Bernardino
The Art of Dreaming, an exhibition showcasing art pieces made with recycled materials, created by CSUSB DREAMers and allies, will take place at The Garcia Center for the Arts in San Bernardino, CA. Topics of the show are centered around the experiences of being an undocumented student or ally.
Opening reception May 22, 2017 with the show running through early June 3rd, with a gala reception and silent auction.
Local artists, performers, and community members are invited to participate and attend.
The money raised at the auction will be disbursed into an emergency scholarship fund for CSUSB’s undocumented students in dire need of financial assistance.
This is a call for artists to donate additional art pieces to join the collection and auction, and a call for performers to participate during the final closing ceremony and gala event. We encourage all artists to come as a community and support this effort. This opportunity is an expression of unity, art, and networking.
