As many of you know, my grandparents were tremendously supportive of my creative efforts when I was a kid. Every year at this time, I remember them through an online auction that will help give kids free art classes in their name at the Worcester Art Museum. I love the idea of Joe and Shirl continuing to connect kids to an arts education.
The Joseph and Shirley Krosoczka Memorial Youth Scholarships at the Worcester Art Museum provide free tuition for art courses to children in unique familial situations with limited financial means. These items can't be bought at a store, found anywhere else online and will only be available through these fundraising efforts.
My time at the Worcester Art Museum was profound for reasons beyond the fact that I grew up to be a professional artist. Art helped me make sense of my world and acted a means of escape from the hand that I was dealt. Thank you for helping me give that gift to kids in my hometown!
