Painted Violin Project 2014!
Call for Artists!
We supply the violin, you supply the artistry.
Benefit young musicians by transforming an unplayable instrument into a work of art.
A maximum of TEN artists will be chosen to produce Painted Violins for the 2014 Painted Violin Project for Youth Orchestras of Fresno.
Winning violins will tour Central Valley galleries for three months and will be auctioned with great fanfare on May 24, 2014.
