Group Benefit Art Show Details


Crossroads Community Association

Exhibit Dates

Wednesday, September 4th to Thursday, September 26th

Funds from the exhibit will go to the CCA Clean + Safe Program

An integral aspect of keeping the Crossroads clean and safe is the removal of graffiti quickly at a reasonable cost. The CCA Clean + Safe Initiative is two-fold.

  1. The short-term goal is a self-sustaining graffiti removal and surveillance program to both remove graffiti and catch those in the act of tagging.
  2. The long-term goal is to establish a CID (Community Improvement District) to further enhance the Clean + Safe program to tackle other common issues in our neighborhood such as litter, homelessness and crime.

Even if you don’t have a problem with graffiti, please consider helping the entire community stay clean and safe by enrolling in the program and/or making a donation.

Thursday Private Artist Reception

Thursday, September 5th, 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm

The Crossroads Community Association are inviting businesses in the Crossroads to attend a private catered event to meet the artists and shop for art. Food and drinks will be provided while supplies last. 

First Friday Group Art Show

Friday, September 6th, 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm 

If possible, please bring some refreshments and/or appetizers to share with the public. Wine, beer, pop, or water in coolers is acceptable too. The gallery has tables set up along the west wall and provides plates, cups and napkins.

50/50 Sales Benefit

All proceeds of art sales will go 50/50 in support of both the artists and the foundation. 

To increase the likelihood of selling your art, it is highly recommended that selected artists or their representative be present during the Thursday Private Artist Reception and First Friday Art Show.
