|Feeding Southwest Virginia, Taubman Museum of Art, Kick Off Partnership To Benefit Children|
Salem, VA (May 14, 2020) - On Monday, May 18 from 1pm-3pm at the Community Solutions Center on Melrose Avenue in Roanoke, VA, The Taubman Museum of Art will join Feeding Southwest Virginia at the Childrenâ€™s Feeding Program to distribute sculpture Art Kits along with the meals and snacks. The Art Kits will include individual lessons on sculpture, modeling clay, and an activity sheet.
This is a new partnership between the Taubman Museum of Art and Feeding Southwest Virginia. The Taubman Museum of Art will plan on providing Art Kits on either sculpture, watercolor, or collage once a week for the next three weeks at one of Feeding Southwest Virginia Childrenâ€™s Feeding Sites.
â€śWe are finding ways to enhance the lives of children in our communities that are in the most need. This is a great partnership as Feeding Southwest Virginia can supply food to feed the body and The Taubman Museum of Art can supply Art Kits to feed the soul," said Pamela Irvine, President and CEO of Feeding Southwest Virginia.
