Wall of Wool: Third Street Center's Unique Donor Display


On a community impact visit—a routine check in El Pomar Foundation conducts with its grant recipients—to Third Street Center in Carbondale, Colorado, Northwest Regional Fellow Stephanie South captured one of the most unique donor walls she has ever seen. Following construction, which El Pomar trustees supported with a $25,000 grant, the center hosted a contest for local artists to design a donor wall to be featured prominently as way to recognize those that contributed to the multi-tenant, mixed-use nonprofit center. The winning design of handmade wool spheres is by artist Jill Scher.
