Fleisher Art Memorial was founded in 1898 as a non profit organization focused on making art accessible to everyone in the community regardless of background or experience. Founder, Samuel S. Fleisher pushed his vision to reality understanding that art is one of the greatest assets and equalizers in a society. On November 24th join your neighbors in Bella Vista for a public supper to celebrate Fleisher’s 142nd birthday.
A small donation will provide you with a meal and ballot. While artists and presenters share their proposals you can enjoy dinner and dessert. Proposals are creative, unique and art inspired. All attendees are asked to vote on which project should receive the ‘dough’. Maybe this is why they call this community gathering Breaking Bread?! Read more information here.
Each year Fleisher influences more than 17,000 individuals who strive to learn and create art. They hold classes, exhibitions and community programs including this Breaking Bread event. Samuel Fleisher believed in the importance of self expression through creativity and intellectual exploration. His core values focus on the artist is us all, the fulfillment of art and the community in which we create and share art.
“Art Enriches the Community — By nurturing each individual’s creative potential, we aim to provide social,
cultural, and economic benefits to the community as a whole.” – Samuel Fleisher
