Arthouse Emergency Relief Fund: Giving More Than Thanks

Help Arthouse help artists unable to make art owing to a health crisis or disaster

In this week of counting our blessings, if you're inspired to give more than thanks to those in need, consider a donation to Arthouse's Emergency Relief Fund. The statewide visual-arts association set up the fund to provide financial aid to artists whose ability to make work has been interrupted by an unexpected health problem or disaster. After Hurricane Ike blew through Texas in September, Arthouse was able to assist four artists with funding grants an average size of $500. That may not sound like much, but in a time of crisis, it can make a major difference. For more information, call 453-5312 or visit www.arthousetexas.org.
