The public can help reach the goal to bring professional artists in from around the country for the Scenic City Art Car Weekend by donating here. Every tax deductible contribution of $5 brings one child closer to receiving the interactive, in-school experience. 

Every $5 raised equals one vote for a school of choice. Schools with the most votes will be announced at the end of the fund drive on April 17. Donations are tax deductible and perks include shirts, totes and art car rides. 

Art cars are for everyone and weekly meetups will be held to share information, tips and tricks that will help transform a vehicle into a work of art - even if it's only for one day. Click here to meetup.
