GoFundMe Artwork Fundraiser | NE WyCo Community Tech Center


 
Our collaborating friend ‘Connecting for Good‘ operates & maintains the first neighborhood community computer technology center in NE Wyandotte County, Kansas City KS. Connecting for Good is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help close the digital divide in the Greater Kansas City area. 

Through the setup of wireless mesh networks, refurbishing used computers and facilitating digital life skills classes, the organization has taken the lead in bringing connectivity and tech learning to under-served neighborhoods.

To bring the walls to life, we are enlisting two prominent Kansas City Kansas artists; Kathy Colon and her twin sister Karen White-Mitchell to create original artwork for permanent display on the interior walls.

The original artwork will use the medium of pastel on black paper. The size of theartwork will be the size 18 x 24. The artwork will be approved prior to the original drawing physically drawn on the black paper.

The artwork will include positive images of men and women that have contributed a positive image in the community, nationally and internationally. 

Some of the positive individuals as candidates for the Connecting for Good Technology Center are:

Nelson Mandela
Barack Obama
Colin Powell
Frank White
Billie Holiday
Mea Jimeson (first African-American female astronaut)
jimi hendrix
