Art studio hosts fundraiser for LTCC equality scholarship
Make Tahoe Records will be at Scott Forrest Fine Art Studio from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 25, to support the Lake Tahoe Pride Lake Tahoe Community College Foundation Equality Scholarship.
Make Tahoe Records will be featuring an exhibit of “Freshly Groomed Vinyl,” a curated collection including new releases from alternative artists and reissues of classics.
Meet local abstract expressionist artist, President of the Tahoe Art League and Board Member of the Tahoe Arts Alliance, Scott Forrest, while learning about the local art community.
Lake Tahoe Pride is committed to diversity and cares strongly about equal rights striving to promote tolerance, education, and communication about issues that affect the community.
Lake Tahoe Pride established the annual Equality Scholarship offered at LTCC in 2013 and has awarded the scholarship to two students per year.
Sheilah Boothby from Make Tahoe has coordinated “Love is A National Treasure,” the Tahoe Pride Art Show, two years in a row. Scott Forrest Fine Art Studio hosted the 2019 event. Due to the pandemic, the fundraising efforts this year will be a “Saturday Show of Support” done through the sale of new, vinyl records.
They will be available in the studio or can be ordered online for shipping or contactless pick up or delivery at MakeTahoeRecords.com. A portion of the proceeds from all vinyl sales that day will be donated to the scholarship. You can also donate directly to the scholarship at http://www.ltcc.edu/giving/donate/scholarships.php.
