Downtown Austin Event: “Be Generous, Buy Art, Meet Gensler”


GenerousARt Generous Art, an online gallery for community-minded art collectors and enthusiasts, makes its debut into the Austin art scene next Thursday evening at the Gensler offices on the 3rd floor of the W Hotel in downtown Austin. The grand opening event marks the launch of the online gallery and will raise money for a number of local non-profits, including Art Alliance Austin, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and SafePlace, among others.

Charitable organizations occupy the heart of Generous Art’s mission. With every art purchase, 40% of the proceeds are given to a non-profit of the collectors choosing, allowing buyers to simultaneously support the artist as well as their favorite local or national non-profit.

Participating artists will have their work exhibited at the grand opening on September 29th. The art will continue to be on display at the Gensler offices until October 26th. The Thursday, September 29th event runs from 5:30-8:30 p.m. is free and open to the public. Live music will be provided by the Robert Kraft Jazz Trio.

For more information about the event and to see a list of participating artists, visit GenerousArt.org.
