San Diego Campus Collaborates with Local Nonprofits to Support Humanitarian Projects

Throughout the summer and early fall, The Art Institute of California—San Diego, a campus of Argosy University, will provide artists, students, and interested parties with a 4x4” wood panel to create a piece that relates to the topics of human trafficking, domestic abuse, hunger and poverty, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The 4x4x4 project is a community collaboration in partnership with four non-profit organizations in the San Diego area. 

The partners for each awareness category are:
Human Trafficking – Partnered with Project Concern International, San Diego
Domestic Abuse – Partnered with Crisis House, El Cajon
Hunger/Poverty – Partnered with Think Dignity 
PTSD – Partnered with Shelter to Solider 
  
The creative work can be literal or abstract. Artists may use paint or a mixture of mediums, but the size will be limited to the 4x4” square. In early fall 2017, the campus will organize a gallery show and opening event, where each panel will be displayed. A silent auction will be held to purchase the small pieces, with profits split between the four organizations.

4x4x4 was spearheaded Lauren Loeffler, director of campus relations, John Sexton, GET Creative Program Coordinator, and AJ Antun, campus president.
