Art Crawl Artists Support Confluence Project

The Confluence Project has been a uniting force in Eau Claire life.

Now, community artists are using the Banbury Art Crawl as an opportunity to support making the Arts Center a reality. During the weekend of the Art Crawl these artists will be donating a portion of their sales to Community for the Confluence.

The artists donating to the project range from photographers, to fiber artists, to painters and multi-media artists.

Jo Ellen Burke, Chair of the Banbury Art Crawl, feels that the mission of the Art Crawl matches the mission of the Confluence Project perfectly.

Burke says, “The Crawl is a rare event where so many artists come together to generously share the creativity and passion that enhances our region. A vast majority of these artists support the advancement of the arts in our community and agree that the Confluence Project epitomized the culturally rich downtown we want to support.”

“We see the Confluence as a foundation around which a brighter cultural environment will grow in Eau Claire.” Burke continues, “The arts community here is healthy, broad, and diverse including visual, musical, theatre, and performance art. Our community recognized that the arts offer a chance to foster civic pride, improve our collective psychological well-being, and to enhance our quality of life. As Beverly Sills stated, ‘Art is the signature of civilization.’”

The Banbury Art Crawl runs February 6-7 throughout Banbury Place. Visit banburyartcrawl.org for more information.
