Tiki Bowl Event A Success

Chris Jones at Popcorn Initiative is a good man who recently put together a great fundraiser for AAF Greenville featuring bowling pins. Here is what he had to say about the project:

I just wanted to highlight a fun little art project I did for an event that AAF Greenville held a couple of weeks ago. The event was TikiBowl - a bowling extravaganza that featured bowling pins turned into works of art by local creatives and artists. My take on it was the folk arty doll above.
