ICT Art Day of Giving begins Friday

Apr 23, 2015

Newman University art students chalked the campus sidewalks depicting the ICT Art Dog to help promote this year’s ICT Art Day Of Giving event.

Last year, donors helped raise over $7,000. This year, Newman University has set its goal at $10,000. With your help, the university can achieve this goal.

This charitable giving event was created for Wichita’s nonprofit art organizations that provide education and artistic leadership to the public through production or exhibition of visual or performing art.

Wichita Art Day of GivingThe event gives Wichita art lovers the opportunity to give back to their favorite nonprofit organizations by making donations online at https://give.newmanu.edu or http://ictartdog.org on April 24, 12:01 a.m. through 11:59 p.m. The minimum donation is $10.

As a special Final Friday event, the Newman University Steckline Gallery will present “Two-Headed Beast” by Dustin Parker and Greg Turner as the eighth and final show of its 2014-2015 season. The Final Friday reception will be from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, April 24, and the exhibit will be on display through May 15. Both the reception and admission to the gallery are free and open to the public.

In addition, “Idiosyncrasy,” artwork by graduating seniors Austin Solis, Gloria Esparza and Lisa Pleskan, will be on display in the Hallway Gallery just outside the Steckline Gallery.
