Description

That's Right!  We said PAINT a fridge!  You can organize a group to transform a residential refrigerator to functional public art!  This is fundraising and community art project all in one.

What's Needed To Complete

We supply the works.  Basically we'll show up in a U-Haul with everything--the fridge, all painting supplies, transportation and installation.  Our fridges each have 160 squares to be painted!  Each square requires a tax-deductible donation of $25 or a minimum of $1000 a fridge.

Whose Help Is Required

Someone to manage the sign-ups and manage the proceeds.

Special Requirements

All ages welcome!

How It Makes A Difference

We love the beautification of creative, public art on our fridges. And the funds raised in this group event help us expand dignified access to healthy food in under-resourced communities.
