Celebrating the Good Work that Sustains Our Community
Dunkiel Saunders invites you to join us for the 5th Annual Art + Soul celebration at our office on June 9, 2016, from 5:30-9:00 p.m.
Over the last fifteen years, our law firm has been privileged to work with people all around Vermont who are engaged in creative and meaningful enterprises that make a real difference in our communities. Helping these inspiring individuals, nonprofits, and businesses succeed is what makes the practice of law so fulfilling for all of us at Dunkiel Saunders.
We created Art + Soul to celebrate their good work, raise money for great causes, and help people forge new connections in Vermont’s vibrant creative economy. Each year, Art + Soul benefits a different local nonprofit and features local art inspired by, or connected to, the nonprofit’s mission. All art will be sold, and proceeds from art sales will be split between the artists and the nonprofit.
This year, the event will benefit Local Motion and will feature more art from local artists, all inspired by Local Motion’s mission.
Local Motion is a member-supported nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring walking and biking within reach for all Vermonters, and to help Vermont communities become great places to walk and bike.
Community leaders founded the organization in 1999 to develop the Winooski River Bike Ferry and the 10-mile historic Cycle the City tour.
With two early successes, the organization broadened its sights on making the Greater Burlington area a better place to walk, bike, run and ski. In 2015 the organization merged with the Vermont Bike and Pedestrian Coalition, and today represents the voice of Vermonters and Vermont communities who want to make walking and biking part of our every day play, work and community. Our programs today:
The last four Art + Soul events have been a great success, and we hope you’ll join us again this year on June 9, 2016, from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. at our office at 91 College Street in Burlington. Come out to celebrate, make some new connections, and enjoy Burlington at its best during the Discover Jazz Festival.
Art + Soul is seeking submissions of creative pieces in any medium that are inspired by or connected to Local Motion’s mission. The artwork does not need to be newly-created work; it just needs to be related to Local Motion’s mission. Artists will participate in a one-night benefit and event on June 9, 2016 at which the artwork will be sold, with a 50/50 split going to Local Motion and to the artist, and you set the price!
