During April, the Arts and Aesthetics Committee is sponsoring an art show and sale of art from the Zimbabwe Artists Project. ZAP is a non-profit that works primarily with women artists from rural Zimbabwe. ZAP buys art directly from the artists and sells it to people in the U.S. looking for beautiful and meaningful art and who want to support their artistic talents. The artists are also subsistence farmers, mothers and householders. All proceeds from the sale of ZAP art at UUAA go directly to ZAP to support health care, education, farming and food assistance in the artists' community.
ZAP comes to UUAA via Portland UU where Reverend Bill Sinkford is the minister. ZAP art will be on display for the month of April. The price range is $50 - 150. This is a chance to do meaningful good and to acquire a vibrant piece of art that will remind you of the cultural diversity of our world, the real needs of its people and the part we can play in helping them.
