support the illCorr commissioning fund

The East Bay Community Foundation has awarded The Illuminated Corridor a challenge grant to support the commissioning of new work.

Now through June 30, 2008 we are asking for your donation to match the EBCF grant. Your dollars are automatically doubled to support the work of four Bay Area artists working in two teams: musician Cheryl E. Leonard and visual artist Rebecca Haseltine and media artists Gilbert Guerrero and Kathleen Quillian. These artists are partnering with the Corridor to create new work for Middle Harbor Shoreline Park. Follow the ChipIn link in the sidebar to be a part of the Challenge or visit the main illCorr site to learn other ways to join the community of donors who have made the Illuminated Corridor possible.
