Artwork for a Cause™

A one-of-a-kind project that helps local charities change lives in the community and secures a lasting legacy for your business

— What is it? —

In short, it’s an 18″ x 24″ (unframed size) completely hand-drawn fine original art commemorative print—a conversation piece showcasing the community as a snapshot in time that will be proudly displayed for decades to come.

Our artists and illustrators create hand-drawn, pen-and-ink images of the community’s historical landmarks, municipal buildings, churches, schools, and of course, local businesses like yours.

You can choose to include a miniature replica of your building, your logo, your sign, company vehicle, or whatever you feel will best represent your business’s place in the community’s history both now and for generations to come.

—How does this help the community? —

219 Community donates fine art commemorative prints to each of our Northwest Indiana 501c3 nonprofit charitable organizations to use at fund raising events this year and in the years to come. 100% of the money they raise from the sale/auction of the commemorative community prints stays with these 501c3 nonprofit organizations.

The proposed organizations that will benefit from this community project are:

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater NWI • Valparaiso Club
“Inspiring youth in our community to their full potential”

Meals on Wheels of NWI
“Nutritious meals, friendly visits, and senior wellness checks”
