Help Fund Our "Take Away" Project on

We have launched our "Take Away" project on a project funding website and we need your help in funding the project. We want to make educational fish playing cards in honor of our full building educational fish mural that will be completed this spring/summer. If we reach our goal of $10,000 by June 20th 2011 our project will be funded, which will help sustain the Portside Art Center and our scholarship fund! This is also the first time the community will be seeing what the mural will look like once it is complete. So check out our project on WWW.KICKSTARTER.COM and search for the Portside Arts Center's "Take Away" Project or click here
