The Art of Saving Humanity will solicit and pick up new or used art supplies from individuals, small businesses, and corporations in the greater Seattle area, and will accept shipments of supplies from areas farther afield. Cash donations are also welcomed, 100% of which will be used to purchase supplies for our artists. Artists and artisans will put the supplies to use, and anything created for sale will be marketed and promoted at no cost to the artist. We hope to build community by introducing our wonderful artists through this site as well as through events and booths at future farmer's markets and art walks.
