Tess Senay Raynovich - Our inspiration.
Born on May 15, 1992
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 would love that we are encouraging others on the path she planned to walk herself.
We believe that art can expand creative thinking across disciplines and communicate ideas that are essential to the well being of our culture. Tess was always an artist but it was not until just before her death that she began to envision how she could infuse 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 art.
Please visit the “What’s Going On” page to see what we have done so far. Looking to the future, we will continue with our scholarships and projects and are developing a plan for a public art project. On the development side of things we will continue to reach out to supporters, work to expand our partnerships with like-minded community organizations, and build sustainable streams of revenue. We are so grateful for every bit of support we recieve.
Tess's family and friends will always hold Tess's spirit as a guide for all we do with this fund that honors her.
