We're always excited to partner with fellow makers and businesses in Nashville, and one of the coolest things we've been a part of is Word of Mouth: More Conversations, a book from our friend and writer Lily C. Hansen. This is the follow-up to Lily's super successful Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations, and we're honored to be a featured in it.
Lily recently reached out to us about supporting the Quilt Project, an initiative that will raise funds for arts programs that offer support to Nashville residents. Nashville, like many cities around the country, has been impacted by national budget cuts for arts programs. Since our business is very much rooted in the arts, this is a cause that is very close to our hearts.
Through the Quilt Project, East Nashville-based artist Jake Elliot will lead a group of 16 other area artists to create a 50-foot mural on Charlotte Avenue called the "Nashville Quilt". The mural will focus on showing the impact that area arts programs have on the community, including the Parks Center , Poverty and the Arts , Room In The Inn , and the Oasis Center.
If you'd like to make a donation to the project and help to purchase supplies for the artists, visit the GoFundMe page. We couldn't be prouder to live and work in Nashville, and we hope that you'll continue to support the arts, both by buying local and by supporting these important programs.
