The Art Room is proud to support This Wild Song and host their event!

Last year we raised almost $14,000 from our Pozible campaign for TWS, and thanks to our supporters we’ve been able to have a new and sophisticated website built by Abby Storey from Little Lion Design!

The new website will house 150+ artist features and allow the audience to search for artists by what medium they use and what state they’re based in.  To celebrate the launch of the new website we’re having a party on Saturday June 24th!

/ FORUM
We’re hosting a forum with four TWS artists who will speak about their practice and take part in a Q&A.  The audience is invited to submit questions for the panel prior to the event.  The four artists participating in the forum are:

Terri Brooks www.terri-brooks-artist.com
