Now, with the National Yard Sale project, Davis is making the final push to fully fund the endowment.  Over 60 artists from across the nation have contributed an original work of art starting with a simple, wooden yard stick to the project.  In supporting another artist’s vision by creating and donating inspired works of art of their own, these artists generously showed their appreciation of Davis’ vision in a way that will benefit the VCCA fellowship and the art lovers at large who will acquire the works.” -Full article click HERE.
