When Promedica approached TTI about doing a live demonstration during the 4 day event Momentum, owner Dane Turpening, saw it as an opportunity to give back. Knowing the importance that art plays in community building Dane saw this as an opportunity to help support and bring awareness to a vital program for artist that are just starting out.
YAAW instills pride and the importance of shared experiences in the youth it employs as artists for 6 weeks of summer employment.
This intensive arts experience that fosters artistic self-expression and a quality work ethic that can impact the youth throughout adulthood also highlights the concept of art as a business, as well as the creation of public art for the greater Toledo community.
The Sculpture will be painted by some of the YAAW youth and then kept in the Promedica lobby until TBA when it will be auctioned off.
