Tess Senay Raynovich Art & Earth Fund

Supporting artists and Eco-art 

 

UPDATE

We are starting to pin down a location for a 2020 Bench!!!

Here is how you can help:We have set a goal to install one new Tess is Love Bench per year. We would love to hear of any spots that you think might need us! Our plan is to continue to place beautiful benches near bus stops to encourage and reward the use of public transit. If you can please donate to this project, any amount will help!

Thanks for supporting the Tess is Love Bench Project!

Tess died suddenly while driving to work on October 28, 2012. She was twenty years old, beautiful, generous and focused on her goal to create art and a life that would be meaningful and authentic. 


The outpouring of love for Tess when she was taken from us was overwhelming. We are so grateful to have had this fund to focus on during the very difficult time that followed her death and to honor her generous spirit going forward. 


Tess was always an artist but it was not until just before her death that she began to envision how she could fuse her art with her interest in the care of our natural resources.  Our task, in honoring Tess, is to support working eco artists, student artists and community activities and projects that communicate Tess’s vision for her own art. Please visit the What We Do page to see what we have done so far.  We are so grateful for every bit of support we receive.


Tess believed everyone in their own way can impact the world for good and practiced this belief in so many concrete ways while she was with us. We honor Tess, her concern for our natural resources, her own endless gift for helping others and love of the visual arts by transforming our sorrow into a living memorial to this unique young woman, tragically taken from us just as she was beginning on her path.
