Asheville Art Museum Hosts 60th Anniversary "pARTy" with RiverLink

ASHEVILLE, NC – Come celebrate at the spring Family Art pARTy! The Asheville Art Museum collaborates with RiverLink to offer an innovative environmental hands-on art experiences all afternoon in celebration of Earth Day 2009. The afternoon will include free family art activities, including the creation of Fundred Dollar Bills, in the Pack Place Lobby and the opening reception of RiverLink’s Earth Art Contest, a student art and writing competition, and the Fundred Dollar Bill Display in the Pack Place Community Gallery.

The Museum will be incorporating the Fundred Dollar Bill Project into the Spring Family Art pARTy. The Fundred Dollar Bill Project is raising local and national awareness of the hidden problem of lead pollution and lead poisoning through the production of "Fundred Dollar Bills." The goal of the project is the creation and collection of three million of these artworks by students across the United States that will be delivered to Washington D.C. to raise awareness and funding to heal the environmental impact of years of pollution compromising environmental health in New Orleans and ultimately other cities. For more information on the Fundred Dollar Bill Project, visit www.fundred.com.
