We’re wrapping up an eventful year! ArtSeed’s “Mustard Seed” annual newsletter arrived in our supporter’s mail boxes this past Thanksgiving, thanks to the help of our fantastic volunteers. Be sure to check your mailboxes to learn about the different ways to donate and support our continuing effort to make huge things happen from tiny beginnings.

We’re also seeking volunteers to help behind-the-scenes at our caricature workshop or for our exhibition’s closing reception in December.
