The ARTS at Marks Garage - MAY 2018 Update
The ARTS at Marks Garage
efore you go through the listing of eclectic, artistic wonderfulness below and start filling up your May calendar, consider this: how do you feel today?
What did you do today that made you feel really great? Can't think of anything yet? Hmmmm, perhaps we can help. If you become a sustaining donor to support The ARTS at Marks Garage, I personally guarantee that you will feel a jolt of AMAZING!
YOU will help assure that we continue to provide 12 free gallery shows each year, 12 First Fridays of hanging out with friends in a natty art gallery (with the best drink prices around), a home for our Partners such as Hawaii Shakespeare Festival, ImprovHI, Hawaii Watercolor Society and PlayBuilders of Hawaii, the bookstore at The ARTS, operated by our Partner Friends of the Library, and events such as Hallowbaloo and our Rocky Horror Picture Show Screening Festival.
You can help make all of that happen today and throughout the year, by becoming a sustaining member. You can choose the amount you donate each month. $5, $10, $25 or more... whatever amount makes you feel really great.
Go on, be proud of yourself! We want everyone in our community to feel AWE-FREAKING-SOME!
And for those of you who are already sustaining donors, MAHALO from the bottom of our hearts. We remain an anchor of AMAZING experiences and opportunities in Chinatown because of YOU!

P.S. We have some art left over from our Raise the Roof fundraiser that we'd like to sell or auction off to support The ARTS. If you are an artist who donated a piece to that event and would prefer we handle it otherwise, please firstname.lastname@example.org let us know. Put RAISE THE ROOF in your subject line, please.
