The History of the “Art Off the Wall” Event:
In 2015, a group of volunteers organized this event in order to raise money so the Carnegie Art Center could re-open its doors. Since that initial year, the event has evolved into a large-scale fundraising initiative to support the Center and allow us to provide high quality arts programming for the community.
At the event, hundreds of 5×7″ artworks that were donated by national, regional and local artists are sold for $20 each. It’s a great time to gather (virtually) and reflect on the wonderful memories of when the building was home to the North Tonawanda Public Library (est. 1905) then the Carnegie Art Center. (since 1975).
This year, we need your support more than ever!
