Um, what is a starving artist?

A starving artist is an artist who sacrifices material well-being in order to focus on their artwork. They typically live on minimum expenses, either for a lack of business or because all their disposable income goes toward art projects.

Some starving artists desire mainstream success but have difficulty due to the high barriers to entry in art such as visual arts, the film industry, and theatre. These artists frequently take temporary positions (such as waitering or other service industry jobs) while they focus their attention on breaking through in their preferred field. (Thanks Wikipedia)

Wait, are you guys really starving?

The artists participating in this show are not in fact starving or even kind of hungry. We eat well most everyday of the week thanks to our day jobs, families and supporters.

However, many people in Rome are actually starving which is why we ask that you bring a canned good so we can donate it to those in our community who really are hungry.

So, is this real art?

Totally. All of our work is original and hand crafted. You can't get more local and more artsy than this. And think, without all those expensive miles on our work, the prices are much better than what you see in stores selling out of town works- and have not distressed our environment.

All this talk of starvation makes me hungry. Will there be food there?

Yes sillies. Yes there will.
