Calling all artists: painters, sculptors and dumpster-diving crafters!

Artists, we need your help!

To celebrate NeighborWork Week, we will be hosting our 2nd annual “Good Neighbor Initiative.” Here’s the gist:

  • We need 12 artists to each decorate a porch bench
  • The completed benches will be on display at DeSoto Central Market, First Friday, June 3rd.
  • Some of the benche will serve as a fundraising component for our organization and will be auctioned off at the event
  • For the remaining benches, we will solicit nominations for good neighbors from across the Valley
  • Throughout the year, a good neighbor will be awarded with a front porch bench — made amazing by a local artist

To learn more about the perks of decorating a bench, download our Call for Artists document.

If you want to participate, please fill out the form located at the bottom of the Call for Artists document. Completed forms must be emailed to by Wednesday May 4.

Here are some photos of benches from last years artists (some of which were featured on azcentral, USA TODAY, as well as lots of other local publications) to get your creative juices flowing  Don’t forget to read about some of our 2015 Good Neighbor awardees!
