2024 Artist: Yura and Asa Armstrong

As Arts Marathon artists we will send a different example of our creative process and work to everyone who sponsors us, five days per week during April. We invite our friends, family, colleagues and anyone else who cares about art and wants to support Bridge to Rutland’s important work to sponsor us. Together we will help welcome new Americans who, in turn, will add immeasurably to our communities.

Yura and Asa‘s Arts Marathon Goal
Yura and Asa will share five new pieces a week — drawings, pottery, writing, maybe even a stop motion movie or two.
Yura and Asa‘s Background

Yura and Asa are 7 and 10 years old. Originally from NYC, they love visiting their grandparents in the Rutland area. (Living in Tokyo, these days they don't make it back often.)

Yura and Asa adore Vermont and believe people from everywhere and every background should be able to enjoy the Green Mountain State. They also believe we should help people in need. As such, they are happy to share their artwork and creative process (as transcribed by their father) to raise money to help asylum seekers.
