25th Anniversary Summer FUN-Drive
June 9 - August 6
Our Board is bored with the average fundraiser- so this summer we’re doing something different!
In honor of the Artists Archives’ 25th Anniversary, AAWR Board members will host unique challenges & activities to raise money to support the conservation of our growing collection of 10,000 works by 89 Ohio artists.
Proceeds will also be used to produce oral history videos which document our artists’ creative journeys!
Pick an event below and support the preservation of Ohio art today!
iPHONE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP WITH RYN CLARKE
Does your “real” camera sit on the shelf while your iPhone fills with photos? Ready to go beyond simple snapshots and take outstanding images? Already an iPhoneographer but looking for new ideas?
This July, join professional photographer Ryn Clarke for her wildly popular iPhone Photography Workshop. Offered with a new, limited class size, all proceeds from this special session will benefit the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve. Suitable for beginners to intermediate users, this hour and a half workshop will teach you the iPhone’s features and capabilities in a structured, easy-to-follow format, followed by hands-on training on your own device. During the class, Ryn will illustrate a variety of ways to enhance images using easily downloaded apps. Get ready to challenge your imagination in this fun and informative afternoon!
Saturday, July 10th 1:00 – 2:30pm
Suggested donation $40/person

LEE HEINEN’S BLUE HAIR CHALLENGE!
AAWR Board Secretary Lee Heinen explains “When my children were young, they referred to people living at Moreland Courts as ‘blue heads’ referencing the rinse women often used to avoid yellowing white hair. Now that I am living at Moreland Courts and the AAWR is in fund raising mode, I have offered to not just tint, but dye my hair blue, if I reach my $500 goal.”
Suggested donations are $25, $50, $100 “for the pleasure of seeing me take this uncharacteristic and uncomfortable action.” If Lee reaches her goal, she will post her new look on Facebook go grocery shopping at Heinen’s during the busy 4th of July weekend- complete with matching red, white, and blue outfit!
