(Joplin, MO) – The Local Color Art Gallery in Joplin, Missouri is thrilled to announce a special fundraising program in partnership with the Downtown Gallery of Joplin. The program aims to support the Joplin Humane Society and aligns with the galleries’ commitment to community engagement, compassion, and the promotion of local artists.
Recognizing the vital role played by the Joplin Humane Society in rescuing, rehabilitating, and finding homes for animals in need, the art galleries have joined forces to raise funds and awareness for this noble cause. The “We Love Our Pets” artwork event, featuring artwork created by students from art classes taught by the Local Color Art Gallery, will be displayed at the Downtown Gallery of Joplin starting on February 14, 2024. This collaboration between the two galleries aims to use creativity to positively impact the lives of animals in the Joplin community.
Throughout the fundraising program, the public is invited to scan the QR Code or click here to vote “Loved” with a $5.00 donation or make a purchase. All proceeds from the sale of artwork or “Loved Donations” will be donated directly to the Joplin Humane Society to support their ongoing efforts in caring for and advocating for animals.
“We believe that art has the power to unite communities and create lasting change,” said Margie Moss, a Member Artist at Local Color Art Gallery. “By partnering with the Downtown Gallery of Joplin and supporting the Joplin Humane Society, we aim to uplift the local arts scene while also making a tangible difference in the lives of animals in need.”
“We invite the Joplin community to join us in this collaborative effort to support the Joplin Humane Society,” expressed Paul Whitehill, Director of the Downtown Gallery of Joplin. “Together, we can make a significant impact and improve the lives of our furry friends who bring joy, companionship, and unconditional love.”
