Salvador’s Deli

March 8 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Salvador’s Deli is a fundraiser created to award art materials to greater Birmingham area visual art teachers and students, who are in desperate need of art supplies for their classrooms.

Each kit includes all of the materials necessary for an art project of the teacher’s choice, for up to 29 students.

The event will feature art made from food by local artists and art students. The celebration will join Birmingham’s burgeoning art and food communities to create an event to look forward to year after year. Salvador’s Deli is a fun evening of local music, food, and art. Celebrity judges will vote on winners, and you can cast your own vote with the people’s choice award!
