Today is THE DAY!!


It’s here! It’s Spring2ACTion day – the day when your donation, no matter how big or how small, will make a HUGE difference for The Art League. From midnight until 11:59 pm TODAY, April 17, you can help The Art League win up to $30,000 in grants and prizes to help fund the programs that make The Art League such a life-changing organization for so many.

The Art League received an amazing $32,416 from 610 donors during Spring2ACTion 2012, coming in first place for the most unique donors and second place for the most dollars! And, we won an additional $9,300 in grant money and prizes – providing much needed funds for our Madison Annex Build-out. We’re pushing for first all around this year – aiming to raise $40,000 from 800 donors – and YOU are the one who can make it happen.

Nearly 100 non-profits are participating this year, so the competition is fierce. Your donation today, no matter how big or small, will make an enormous impact! The organization with the most donors wins a $5,000 grant, so $10 will go a long way.

We’re fortunate to have generous matching sponsors throughout the day. The Mason Hirst Foundation is providing a $500 matching gift, and ardent supporter Terry Butler is providing a $500 matching gift for the 7:00-8:00 am hour. Combined with the special “power hour” giving times, your donation today will effectively be double or even tripled.

The Art League is partnering with ACT for Alexandria to donate 5% of funds raised during today’s Spring2ACTion event to The Boston Foundation to support those directly affected by Tuesday’s Boston Marathon bombings.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
