WE WON!!!!!

It's OFFICIAL!! The Philadelphia Sculpture Gym is going to happen with the help of a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Knight Arts Challenge!!! A HUGE thanks to everyone at the Knight Foundation for believing in this project and for giving us an amazing opportunity!!! Justin and I are insanely excited (and scared out of our minds) to make this dream a reality! Now...we just have to raise $19,900 (my mom gave us the first donation of $100...Thanks Mom and Dad (aka Debi and Andy Jackson)!!!) to match the grant! Anyone interested in donating (we love you!) please feel free to contact us at philadelphiasculpturegym(at) to find out more about doing so.

Also, exciting news is that we are being fiscally sponsored by The Miami Foundation, a non-profit company based in Miami. What does that mean? That your donation is tax deductible! To make a donation online, please visit the Miami Foundation website and click on 'Give Now'. This will take you to a secure Pay Pal donation page. Under 'Purpose' please type "Philadelphia Sculpture Gym Fund". It's that easy! Be sure to send us an email letting us know that you donated so we can be sure to thank you profusely!!

Stay tuned for upcoming community based fund-raising events (Art Raffle anyone?) and Philadelphia Sculpture Gym Workshops (One day workshops that will give people a feel of what Philadelphia Sculpture Gym Classes will be like, while learning a new and exciting skill such as mold making, casting, animal sculpture, art packing, etc...)

Thanks again to everyone for your support!
