Dwell with Dignity: Call for Artists

My mom is a big fan of DWD, Dwell with Dignity.  I’ve spent many summers working in the warehouse with superman Scott, who taught me a thing or two about putting together furniture and loading trucks.  My brother and I often volunteer there through YMSL.

DWD Call for Arts 2018

Each year they host a fundraiser called Thrift Studio.  My mom helps out and several years I even attended the event with her.  My favorite part is the Art & Color Party that takes place before that.  They have many great local artists who submit an amazing art piece to be sold in one of the designers vignettes.  It always gives me inspiration.  One year my mom even purchased one from Benson Cobb that hangs in our entry hallway.

This year my mom suggested I submit an entry.  She assured me that high school students were ok.  So…I’m considering creating a new piece or parting with Glass Half Smashed. It’s hard for my mom to part with anything, so we shall see…

For you artists out there, be sure to check it out.  The Art Chair is Mione Plant who has some pretty cool pieces.  Inspiring, right?  I’ll keep you posted on my submission.
