REGISTER BELOW FOR SELECT WORKSHOPS:
San Francisco-based artist Vincent Serritella was overwhelmed by the high end art market being treated as a commodity, making original art unaccessible to the average person. In response, Serritella launched Project 365, with the goal of creating and then giving away an original piece of artwork every single day for an entire year to the first person who asked for it via a comment on his Facebook page. Each original piece would be sent to the person that requested the work, wherever they were in the world, for free.
Serritella is now in the process of self-publishing a book about this experience with funds raised through a Kickstarter campaign, and he plans to donate all proceeds of the book to the Children’s Creativity Museum.
A collection of his 365 drawings will be on display and available for purchase in our Hall Gallery.
