#Bus2Barrick Rebel Raiser Update: The Cosmopolitan donates 20 Bryan Ferry Tickets to the cause.
British art pop legend Bryan Ferry is coming to The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan – Las Vegas, NV on August 17th. The Cosmopolitan has generously offered us twenty tickets, and we’re giving two tickets away to the first ten people who donate $40 or more to our Bus to the Barrick campaign on 7/25/17 between 9 am - 5 pm.
Not only will you see one of the most iconic and innovative artists to emerge in popular music, you’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift is helping students from schools across the Las Vegas Valley experience an art museum for, perhaps, the first time in their lives.
Please be as generous as you can. Everyone deserves access to the arts.
To celebrate our 50th year of service to Las Vegas, we plan to increase the number of free field trips we offer to CCSD students of all ages and academic disciplines. As the Barrick is the only art museum in the city, such visits may be the first time that many young Las Vegans encounter the visual arts outside the classroom. For some, it may also be their first exposure to a university campus. Through cooperative discussion and guided activities we hope to assist students on their path to lifelong learning. But we need your help!
The biggest barrier to Clark County School District field trips is the cost of transportation and materials. The funds you donate will go towards renting buses and buying art supplies for tours. Our goal is to host 2 tours per month during the 2017-2018 academic year, bringing in more than 1000 students between 1st and 12th grade. Any donations beyond this goal will be used to provide the students with advanced fine art workshops led by local artists and alumni.
The more gifts we receive, the more opportunities we have to make a difference in the lives of young Nevadans. Thank you!
