Many local artists struggle to make ends meet in order to pursue their passion, but one community is hosting an exhibition and auction to help creative residents.
Recently, officials from the Springfield Regional Arts County in Missouri announced that they will host the Hearts for the Arts show in spirit of Valentine's Day to give local artists their the chance to display their work, according to the News-Leader. Approximately 60 entries from creative individuals around the region are expected to be submitted for auction. People who are participating in the show are eligible to receive a 35 percent discount on select canvases at the National Art Shop.
"Hearts for the Arts is a great way of highlighting local artists and raising funds for the [arts council's education programs]" Leah Hamilton Jenkins, executive director for the Springfield Regional Arts council, told the news source. "All the proceeds will go to fund our 30 educational programs, which benefit about 30,000 children."
This is the third-annual Hearts for the Arts program to be hosted in the community. Jenkins hopes to raise approximately $3,000 this year.
Employment of artists is projected to increase by 12 percent over the next seven years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
