Western National Insurance hosted its 9th Free Arts Day at Cornerstone on July 9, 2014! Dubbed The Relationship Company, WNI has a longstanding relationship with both Free Arts and Cornerstone, a domestic violence shelter and Weekly Mentorship partner site. 35 volunteers, over half of them returning from last year, spent the day as Art Pals to Cornerstone youth. It was especially exciting to see the reunion of WNI employee Maria and her Cornerstone buddy Maya! The two have been paired at Free Arts Day every year, and though they only see each other once a year, their friendship is a testament to the power of relationships built through the means of art.
When asked to describe the day in a single word, Udeme, a young boy from Cornerstone, proclaimed it was “Epic!” – all the proof we need that Free Arts Day was a complete success! For more photos, visit our Facebook page.
