Charitable Partner Tent

CHARITABLE PARTNERS PROGRAM

Generously Sponsored by Denison Parking

The Uptown Art Fair is an internationally renowned fair celebrating artists and providing them with an opportunity to showcase their work at the second most attended event in Minnesota.  The Uptown Association has produced the Art Fair since 1973 and each year works to make it more exciting and unique.
We continue to partner with a select number of local non-profits and allow them to be featured during the Art Fair.  Our goal is to create a unique and entertaining space in a dedicated tent that will feature each distinctively in an interactive format. We are very excited to feature these 4 amazing organizations during the 2018 Uptown Art Fair!

PRINT THE LOVE

 Print the Love’s mission is to celebrate the value and dignity of individuals in under-resourced communities through the gift of an instant photograph. It is Print the Love’s vision to see every person on earth feel loved, valued, and celebrated even amidst life’s most difficult trials; that all would have access to photographs of family, friends, and life’s most cherished memories and milestones.

Kits of Kindness
Attendees are invited to encourage random acts of kindness at the Uptown Art Fair by creating a kit of kindness. A full list of Random Acts of Kindness ideas and instructions will be on display for guests to perform them at a later date. Guests are also encouraged to list and describe their favorite cherished photos – noting this is something a lot of people do not have.
