In May 2017, a group of volunteers from Dell Nashville transformed the exterior of our studio and gallery space AND planted a garden for our artists overcoming homelessness to cultivate and harvest. We are so thankful for everyone at Dell who donated to the project, as well as came out to volunteer!

“Having Dell Volunteers at Poverty & the Arts put me in a position where I felt respected. It’s not just that they care about our organization, but they were so fast and personable. They really gave us curb appeal, as a business, and while they were doing it, they made me feel like an important part of this community.” -POVA artist Beth Gunn

HARVEST TIME!

At the July Art Crawl, our artists were able to take home dozens of HUGE squash and zucchini. People talked about making casseroles, zucchini bread, baked zucchini chips and more. Thank you Dell Nashville! Your impact keeps on growing!
