Give Your Heart to Art!

$ 500.00
Personal Info

Donation Total: $500.00

Tall Grass Arts Association is almost as old as the Village of Park Forest and has been a vital part of the art scene in the southern suburbs for 66 years. Tall Grass survived the recession of 2008 and the recent COVID-19 pandemic, with its mandated closure of the gallery and school, through the generosity of its supporters. So once again we come to you for your support. Tall Grass is in the process of upgrading the school. This involves the removal of carpeting and replacing the lighting. Most importantly, as Tall Grass serves children in several economically disadvantaged school districts, the board attempts to offer scholarships to students who need them. Your donation will help us complete these projects and continue to offer scholarships. Please be generous!
