Now Showing! Come see what’s in the Metropolitan Press gallery, ArtSpace in March: Art For Your Cause presents Color Me Empowered Exhibition. On display March 4-22, 2019, this exhibition showcases work by Art For Your Cause artists, and celebrates National Youth Art Month. Meet the artists at the Color Me Empowered Artist Reception on Thursday, March 14 from 5pm to 9pm at ArtSpace. A portion of purchase proceeds will benefit local nonprofit Color Me Empowered.

Color Me Empowered projects and programs bring art and art education to children. These include the Cottrell House Mural, inside the Juvenile Halfway House for young men; Seagoville Elementary Garden Mosaic; Create the Change Mural, at their new CME headquarters; and Kids Summer Art Camp. From Color Me Empowered:

We believe that giving children the opportunity to improve their immediate community will enable them to see the power of art and the ability within themselves to bring about positive change in their environment. Our hope is that by engaging the children of a community, we’ll engage the entire community to bring about positive change.

Color Me Empowered provides programming that empowers children and communities through the implementation of civic art and facilitation of quality visual arts education. We envision communities that utilize creative means to generate positive social change. Our core beliefs focus on these elements: Creativity, Optimism, Kindness, Consistency, Self-Respect, Compassion, Cultural Sensitivity, Sustainability, Teamwork, and Transparency.

The exhibition is presented by Art For Your Cause. Art For Your Cause (AFYC) is an online gallery with a philanthropic twist. Art For Your Cause brings art lovers, artists and nonprofits together through their unique community. AFYC promotes art through its partnerships with nonprofits using the Art Lover Member we pay it forward.
