Give a Christmas Tree to the Komechak Art Gallery!



Just imagine . . .

Twenty-five Christmas trees decorated by BenU students, local high schools, parishes, along with prominent area professional artist and graphic designers on display from November 20 through December 22, 2017 in the Komechak Art Gallery. Can you see it?

OUr five year goal is to make the Festival of Trees a campus-wide endeavor that will be the premier, must attend, hoilday event in our region and to raise $1M for the University Art Collection and our endowment funds.

We Need You, Your Friends and Your Families to Donate the Following:

20 Christmas Trees in Good Condition:  If you are cleaning your attic, garage, or storage or downsizing and want to give us that old tree, we will take it!

Decorations for Trees & Display: While you are cleaning out some space, we will take your decorations and any display materials you may want to give.

Your Time: We love volunteers! We encourage you to become a part of the Arts@BenU and we will be sending out information on how you can be a part of the First Annual Festival of Trees.
