As part of Virginia Commonwealth University professor Noah Scalin's Design Rebels course, a group of seniors from the Graphic Design Department are accepting any and all donations of canned food and warm clothing in exchange for original artwork done by local artists.

Donors will receive a color-coded donation paper at the event based on the size of their donation and will be able to take home a piece of artwork with the same color sticker as the ticket.

“It will serve as a reminder to artists that you can change things with your art,” says Brandon Petteway, a graphic design major and organizer of the event. “Especially in the design world, there's sort of a business aspect to it.”

Donations for Creations will be held Nov. 22, 2-8 p.m., at 1509 W. Main St.
