Have you all been in to check out Arts Unbound in Maplewood Village (100 Baker Street)? The space looks great and what a wonderful philosophy – to promote the passion and careers of disabled and elderly artists. I’m very excited to team with Arts Unbound as a sponsor for an upcoming event called Art Bender. For 24 hours (May 14-15, noon to noon) it’s time to get your creative on. Whatever it is – tackling a garden project, painting with the kids, playing guitar – you name it – just get artsy and share it at #artbender. According to lead volunteer Danni Michaeli, the hope is to make this an annual event. “This is the time to do that project you’ve been putting off,” he said. “Tell your friends and neighbors, spread the news.” To sign up for the event, sponsor an artist or get more details about organized activities planned that day for kids visit artbender.org.
