We would like to give you an awesome opportunity to help out an amazing Ypsilanti non-profit at this year’s DIYpsi. FLY Children’s Art Center is a mobile studio that brings meaningful art making experiences to kids of all ages free of charge. The above video is an interview with founder Ruth Marks that expands on what they’re all about.
We are incredibly lucky to have FLY in our community, and DIYpsi is committed to helping them succeed. We have never charged admission to the show, but this winter we will have a box by the door with FLY’s name on it. If you have a minute to clean out your own art supplies at home and grab those colored pencils you don’t use or leftover yarn from the hat you made last year, you can put them in the box when you come in the door. We will be holding this art supplies drive during the entire duration of the show next weekend and we’re hoping we can fill up the box more than once. We will take however much or however little you have. If you would like to purchase something for FLY you can check out their wishlist here.
There will also be a FLY table at DIYpsi from 11-2 both Saturday and Sunday where you can learn more about what they do and how you can get involved. They are holding a silent auction the weekend after DIYpsi that many of our artists will be donating work to. If you would like to put something you have made in the auction feel free to bring that with you and drop it off at their table as well.
Thanks for helping us make Ypsi a better place!
We have had some talks over here at DIYpsi HQ about the state of commerce in America and how artists fit into that puzzle— this little manifesto is the result of our conclusions. The best way to make your voice heard as a consumer is to put your money behind what you believe in and what you would like to see come to fruition. We believe that the arts make a city, state and country great— hopefully you agree. If you’re tired of throwing your money at companies who don’t care about or invest in our community, drop out of the global economy and choose to invest in the local. It’s that simple.
