Calling All Artists
The Folk School community has always come together to support one another during challenging times. Inspired by the efforts of essential frontline workers, we have created Hearts at Work, a new Folk School project to acknowledge and show our gratitude for front line workers during the COVID-19 crisis.
We’re seeking submissions and asking Folk School makers to create and donate heart-themed projects to be presented to essential employees in Clay and Cherokee counties. We’ve estimated nearly 2,800 essential workers from postal clerks to health care workers and grocery store employees. We’re hoping to receive many hearts to meet our goal.
- All art should be in the shape of a heart or include a heart motif
- Hearts can made from any non-perishable material
- Hearts should not exceed 6 inches in the largest dimension
- “Hearts” can be included in a poem or story
- The deadline has been extended to June 19.
- Makers ship or drop off hearts at Folk School at the expense of makers
Please ship items to:
John C. Campbell Folk School
