A key part of ART 180's mission is to give young people a voice in the community. We accomplish this partly through products that present their creative work and that inspire other people to express their creativity. Sale proceeds benefit future ART 180 programs.
If you are in the Richmond area and want to save some money on shipping, we encourage you to stop by the ART 180 office (114 W Marshall St Richmond, VA 23220) in Plant Zero in historic Manchester and purchase the products in person. We are always pleased to see you! Plus, you get a behind-the-scenes look at the magic that is ART 180.
