Awesome Foundation Oahu is pleased to announce our February 2017 receipient of $1,000 to The ARTS at Marks Garage!  Awesome was contacted by Rich Richardson who reached out to us because they are in need of stage curtains. The Arts at Mark's Garage is a 14 year old artist-run, nonprofit community arts center that attracts over 45,000 annual visitors to twelve major multidisciplinary exhibits and over 150 performances, lectures, screenings, and workshops.  It is an incubator for over a dozen performance and visual arts groups, and offers creative classes for the neighborhood youth. The ARTS is a primary sponsor of the creative revitalization of the downtown-Chinatown area through neighborhood relations, street festivals, neighborhood maps, First Friday Honolulu, and other community celebrations.

Currently they are giving their performance space an update and replacing the stage curtains is a must. These curtains must be 110 feet of heavy, sound-deadening, fire retardant material.

This is the part where we come in.  Awesome Foundation Oahu is a proud supporter of the Arts in our community and we are thrilled to help The Arts at Mark's Garage with much needed new stage curtains.  We look forward to the continuation of them transforming our community with the power of arts and help to establish Honolulu's Chinatown as the creative capital of the Pacific.
