Update: Workhouse 'Have a Heart Project' Collects $2,500 for Food for Others

Have you bought a $10 piece of art for charity yet?

Workhouse Arts Center studio artists John Gascot and Mary Gallagher-Stout, also known as The Art Monkeys, have sold 250 artistic lunch bags, and have raised $2,500 for the Food for Others charity. 

More than 30 Workhouse artists contributed to the second annual "Have A Heart Project" by making a piece of art from an ordinary paper lunch bag. The bags cost $10. 

Last year's event raised enough money to purchase 750 pounds of food.  

"It's going fantastic," said Stout to Patch. "People are coming in from everywhere to get the bags." 

The last day for their second annual "Have a Heart Project" is March 3. You can see the bags in Building W-4 of the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton.
