"I Am Kindness" at Canopy in Mpls

Cactus, 12x16", acrylic/graphite, $0!

"A special evening in which money has no value and kindness prevails. 
That means complimentary drinks, complimentary food, and you can purchase art by doing good in our Minneapolis community. 
(Buy art by registering to volunteer your time with local organizations of the artist's chasing! 
I chose a local LGBTQA organization for my cactus painting.)

Canopy by Hilton Minneapolis has partnered with I AM | Sarah Edwards for an art show in which you can't buy art with money, but with acts of kindness. The show features some of the most incredible artists in the Twin Cities.
The evening will include kindness infused cocktails brought to you by Prairie Organic Spirits and Douglas & Todd Bourbon. The first 50 guests will receive a gift from Minny & Paul. Minny & Paul curates local gifts featuring Minnesota brands and makers. There will be live music by Mississippi Hot Club and free valet parking for guests. Claire Ward will be drawing live fashion illustrations of guests, and HandsOn Twin Cities will be on-site to facilitate a community volunteer project!
Featured artists include:
