Review for The Dreaming Zebra Foundation, Portland, OR, USA
The Dreaming Zebra Foundation reached out to us to inquire about our Fine Arts needs in our large, urban school district that serves over 9,500, culturally diverse students. The City School District of Albany and it's Superintendent's Arts Advisory Committee in Upstate New York are so appreciative to gain local and national arts funding partnerships with organizations like "The Dreaming Zebra Foundation". With their support and their ability to "make connections," we were delighted to engage in conversation that lead us to receiving the needed funds that will support our "2016 City School District of Albany Elementary Art Show" (3rd Annual). The show will be held from May 6-8, 2016 at our local art museum, the Albany Institute of History & Art. Last year's show had over 1,000 people walk through the exhibit!
Our opening reception will continue to spotlight student artwork from all 12 elementary schools and will showcase student musical and dance performances during the opening reception. Albany Mayor Sheehan and City School District of Albany Interim Superintendent Wilkins will begin our opening with a warm welcome. All our students and their families are invited to come to the art show all weekend long to see the Institute's galleries and art exhibition, with free admission. Our students and their families will have the ability to walk through the galleries and see their artwork hang alongside famous artworks, rich in local history from the Hudson River School paintings to viewing Ancient Egyptian mummies.
Not only are we appreciative of the Albany Institute for partnering with our Art and Music Dept., but we are thrilled to have the needed support of proceeds from Price Chopper supermarkets through the assistance of The Dreaming Zebra Foundation and D. Camera. We hope to grow this relationship in the years to come. We look forward to a wonderful event this year - thank you Dreaming Zebra for helping us make your acquaintance to form connections to serve and benefit our culturally diverse elementary children and their Fine Arts program in such a special and significant way.
