Grizzly Grizzly & Co. is teaming up with Vox Populi for a first-ever preview of artwork for the 2017 Community Supported Art project. This event – free and open to the public – will feature a one-night raffle where guests can buy a chance to win an artwork from the 2012 or 2017 seasons of Community Supported Art. All proceeds will benefit Vox Populi and the Community Supported Art project.
In the wake of the 319 building fire, 1241 Carpenter Street Studios in South Philly has generously offered to host the event. A pop-up exhibition and raffle, featuring two complete shares, will be on view in the common area. Guests can enjoy refreshments, and choose what artworks they might try to win. Raffle tickets will be on sale for only $25. Each ticket offers a chance to win an artwork of your choice from the 2012 or 2017 share (each valued at over $250.)
