What POSSCA has to say about the event;
Need art supplies? Searching for a great gift for yourself or a friend?
Check out the artistic wares and whatnots of over 65 area artists! Â The
Artists’ Garage Sale is a unique event that gives Olympia’s artists and
lovers of the arts the opportunity to meet, shop, and connect. Â This is
the fourth year for this popular event, which was started by the City of
Olympia and is now hosted by POSSCA (Patrons of South Sound Cultural Arts).
The event is just $1 and additional donations to POSSCA will be welcomed
at the door. Â All proceeds from the Artists’ Garage Sale will benefit
our mission to support the arts, including our CAPS (Cultural Assistance
Program for Students) program which provides musical instruments to
students who otherwise couldnâ€™t participate in school music programs.
POSSCA also awards several annual arts scholarships to high school
seniors pursuing arts education at the college level.
Even if you arenâ€™t able to attend this fabulous event, a POSSCA donation
is an easy way to make a big difference to a kid whose family canâ€™t
afford a musical instrument, or a high school senior who wants to study
the arts at college.
*Give a Little, Help a Lot*
State and federal funding for arts in the schools is decreasing every
year. Art programs often fall by the wayside as school districts
struggle to find money for the basics.
