Art for Clean Water: A World Vision Fundraiser


Where: Frameworks Gallery 2022A Ford Parkway
Opening Reception: January 26th 7pm-9pm

Background: Team World Vision, a part of World Vision, was started 13 years ago by Michael Chitwood and has since raised over $50 million for clean water projects and provided thousands of children with sponsors around the globe. His idea was for people to take part in endurance sports (Marathons, Triathlon's, etc) while asking others to donate money or sponsor children. Since 2015 Frameworks Gallery co-owner Mandy Madsen has participated in 4 marathons, 2 half marathons, and an Ironman with Team World Vision in an effort to raise money and sponsorships. She wanted to bring this passion to the workplace, so Frameworks sponsors a child for every employee and is donating 100% of the gallery's profits from this show to Team World Vision. There will also be an opportunity to sponsor a child for $39 a month through World Vision- this is a personal way to help someone and aid in bringing an entire community out of poverty. Any person that sponsors a child the night of the opening will receive a $250 gift certificate to Frameworks Gallery as our thank you.

The art for this show has a global theme, so come check out works representing Africa, Europe, local Minnesota and more. There are several artists, making it an interesting show, varying in styles and mediums.

A special thank you to Jackson Duin and Susan Solomon for their generosity. Jackson, a 14 year old artist, has chosen to donate all of his paintings, and Susan kindly donated one of hers- this means the artist and gallery commissions will all be given to Team World Vision.

Be sure to stop by, eat some food, chat with us about World Vision and choose to make a difference. Originals, prints, cards and jewelry will be available to purchase. You can't do everything, but you can choose to do something. We appreciate your support!

Show runs January 26th to March 2nd. If you can't make it, you can donate directly at this link

People instinctively know the landscapes and environments they love. These spaces may be physical ormental landscapes. My work is an attempt to honor and access these vital places. - Susan Solomon

I am a 14 year old artist from Minneapolis, MN. I use my thoughts and feelings to make my paintings. I try to paint how the world feels rather than how it looks. - Jackson Duin
