I have lined up $3000* to be given away as art scholarships to art students under 18 years of age, via an internet voting of their art creations displayed on the Art it Up Car.Now that Huntington Bank /5o Monroe has been secured as my venue I hope to increase this amount to $10,000 via Kickstarter) and other sources.
