Arts Marathon Artists

The Annual Arts Marathon is a fundraiser to help Bridge to Rutland assist asylum seekers in Rutland County with housing, living expenses and legal fees. The Arts Marathon is a community effort involving artists of every kind. At least five days per week in the month of the marathon, the artist(s) you sponsor will send you a different example of their creative process and work.

While we are no longer taking donations for individual artists, you can still donate to this fundraiser by clicking here.
