Foundation for Appalachian Ohio
Cause Connector Project
Artists will be invited to participate in Majestic Galleries' Pigments Project Exhibition in spring 2022. The exhibition will be a multi-part and multi-partner effort involving Majestic Galleries, Rural Action, and Little Cities of Black Diamonds. In conjunction with principals in the OU Department of Engineering and the OU School of Art, Rural Action has established a social enterprise to clean up area streams impacted by acid mine drainage and to develop an economic benefit to extracting iron oxides that have polluted the waters for decades. Three colors have been successfully manufactured (orange, red, and purple) from these oxides. Artworks in the exhibition will feature images and objects that significantly employ these paints or pigments. Displays by Little Cities of Black Diamonds and Rural Action will accompany the exhibition. Lectures will be held on the impacts and history of extractive industries in the Hocking Coal Fields.
We have a new opportunity to raise funds for our Pigment Project!
On February 10th, the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio is launching a new giving website called Cause Connector at 10AM. Our PROJECT NAME is featured on the website!
Cause Connector will help donors find and support meaningful, local projects like ours. This will make it easier for local organizations in Appalachian Ohio to get needed funding and pursue new projects.
The Foundation for Appalachian Ohio designed Cause Connector in a unique way. Every gift to Cause Connector will support two things – the project of the donor’s choice (like our PROJECT NAME) and the Foundation’s I’m a Child of Appalachia Fund, which will support projects like ours in the future. We’re working together with the Foundation to make our project happen today and grow the dollars that can support this work in our communities in the future.
We hope you will join us by giving to our project at www.CauseConnector.org. Gifts of all sizes are welcome.
What’s more, the Foundation has a dollar-for-dollar match available during the launch of Cause Connector. This means every gift to a project is matched and we can reach our fundraising goal faster.
Projects will be listed on Cause Connector from February 10 – April 9. Please help us meet our goal before the deadline!
