Something’s got to GIVE

August 4-27, 2021

Main Street Kent is partnering with Troppus Projects in the “Something’s Got to GIVE” Art Fundraiser/Silent Auction. Community members and visitors are invited to visit the show at Troppus Projects throughout the month and bid on pieces they love in support of Main Street Kent. A closing reception will be held on Friday, August 27 from 5-7pm and 100% of proceeds will go to Main Street Kent, who supports local businesses and fosters arts in the community.


Community members are being asked to contribute by creating and donating a 6” square piece of artwork for the fundraiser. Contributions can be made at Troppus Projects through July 15. Any substrate may be used or pre-cut 6” x 6” mixed media paper is available at Troppus Projects free of charge. Three-dimensional works may be donated as long as they are within the 6” x 6” x 6” parameters. Contributors are asked to print their names on the back of the work only. A list of contributors will be included in the exhibition and for promotion, but not attached to artworks. Contributors’ names will be revealed to the buyer upon purchase and all works will remain on display until the end of the exhibition.

Main Street Kent and Troppus Projects reserve the right to exclude works deemed inappropriate.
