Success!

December 02, 2015

We did it with your help! Thanks to your support, we raised a total of $13,270 for José Montoya’s Abundant Harvest: Works on Paper/Works on Life. Because of you, we will be able to present this fantastic exhibition and offer exceptional educational programs building Chicano cultural awareness. We look forward to sharing this project with everyone in February 2016!

Please look out for a personal email with updates on the perks you are eligible to receive in thanks for your donation. Thank you again for helping us bring the art of José Montoya to UCLA!

Muchas Gracias!

November 19, 2015

We are proud to share that we have reached our goal of raising $10,000 for the exhibition José Montoya's Abundant Harvest. Thank you for your generous support of the Fowler's Spark campaign. We couldn’t have done it without you!

While we have met our initial goal, additional funds are still needed to fully realize this important exhibition, offer free arts education opportunities to local K-12 students, and host a variety of public programs building Chicano cultural awareness. We encourage you to continue to spread the word and ask friends and family to make contributions through December 1 (Giving Tuesday) to ensure the highest quality presentation of José Montoya's Abundant Harvest and to reach the widest possible audience. We hope that during the remaining days of our campaign we can double what we have already raised!

Once again, thank you for helping us bring the art and life of José Montoya to UCLA. We look forward to fulfilling your perks on an ongoing basis from now until spring 2016.

Art + Tamales: A Collaboration with the Fowler Museum and Out of the Box Collective

November 17, 2015

We’re excited to announce that Fowler Spark partner Out of the Box Collective has created—exclusively for the Abundant Harvest campaign—the Chicano Box, filled with local ingredients and recipes inspired by LA’s favorite Chicano dishes. Visit The Chalkboard for more info on the Chicano Box and a great tamales recipe. Out of the Box Collective is also offering a 15% discount on first orders to all Abundant Harvest donors at the Pachuco ($25) level and above! Supporters will be sent a discount code in a separate email. 

Thank you again for helping us raise $10,000 by December 1. We have reached 76% of our goal with 14 days left to go. Help us cross the finish line and spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! #AbundantHarvest

We have one more favor to ask: help us spread the word! Share your support on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using #AbundantHarvest.
