If you appreciate how important it is to nourish the imaginations of our future generations, and you cringe every time you hear about arts funding getting slashed from school budgets, here's a chance to make a little difference.
Local installation and performance artist Lindsey Bailey has dreamed up Deliciously Happy, a collaborative art project with three different age groups at three Nashville area schools: University School of Nashville, Bordeaux Elementary and Lead Academy. She's lead workshops to develop art projects for each school, and the students' work will be featured in a gallery show at Belmont in March. I could tell you a lot more about Deliciously Happy, but Lindsey's video above does a much better job than I could do.
Bailey has self-funded the project so far, but she needs help to bring it to fruition, so she's started a Kickstarter campaign. She's raised about $2,300 of her $4,000 goal so far, so she needs at least $1,700 more in pledges by 11 a.m. Central Time on Sunday, Nov. 27, to get Deliciously Happy funded. So you've got four days left to become a patron of the arts. Don't wait till it's too late!
