|Description||Groups of motorcyclists from across the U.S. are preparing to “Ride to Reno” in April of 2008 to raise money for the benefit of visual art. All proceeds from the ride, comprised mostly of those employed by the art supply industry, will go directly to the NAMTA Foundation.
The NAMTA Foundation supports the visual arts by providing annual scholarships for students pursuing visual art-related courses of study; disaster relief grants to aid those individuals, art-related businesses and organizations who are devastated by natural or manmade disasters; grants to individuals and organizations to provide visual art projects within local communities; and coordination of visual art projects for children and senior citizens.
With various starting points across the country, groups of riders will arrive in Reno, NV by April 30, 2008 to kick off the largest industry-only art materials show in the U.S., organized by the National Art Materials Trade Association (NAMTA). Ride organizers are currently seeking riders and those interested in sponsoring riders. Corporate sponsors of the ride are Macpherson’s and Artograph.
For more information and sign ups for riding or sponsorship, visit www.namtafoundation.org, or email Rachel Gray at email@example.com.
