Art Marathon Events

To officially kick off this effort as a community, we will be hosting a series of Art Marathon Events  in which all of the participating institutions, artists, and the public are invited to come together over one weekend to make art as a part of Still Running.  We will use the artworks produced from these events to support the small works exchange part of the project and a selection of these works will also be featured in our small traveling show to promote awareness for Still Running.  

UPCOMING EVENTS (updated on 3/11/13):
