Sakroots “Channel Your True Love for Art” Charity Art Show

November 20, 2014:

The walls of the Fireside Lounge are decorated with beautiful pieces of artwork in preparation for the “Channel Your True Love for Art” charity art show. Bayley Blackney, president of the Yoga Club, is also a campus ambassador for Sakroots. Sakroots is an accessory brand that connects to the artist, musician, and nature lover in us all. Sakroots also supports sustainability, and is partnered with 10 different charities that include but are not limited to The Nature Conservancy, The WDC, and The Honey Conservancy.

To raise brand awareness and to raise money for charity, Blackney has paired with Art Club to find artists willing to donate their time to this event. Each piece is unique and is a representation of the theme of this show: nature, love, peace, and sustainability. Each artist has chosen a charity to donate at least 50% of the money to, for each piece sold.

Artist and Menlo alum, Vicky Schultz, states, “I was really excited that Bayley asked me to be a part of this art show. I think allowing people to express themselves through their artwork is a great way to get involvement for a good cause, along with it being an excellent marketing campaign as well! I also loved the theme because it allowed for a lot of creative freedom and really held a lot of meaning for me personally.”

Stop by Fireside to see Vicky’s pieces, along with several other works of art! The reception will take place before Tavern Night on Thursday, November 20 starting at 7:30 pm. There will be art, food and drinks, henna tattoos, Sakroots raffle prizes, and live music by Kaylee Madsen and Tyler Diamond.
