 Novi Home Show Report
The Home Show was a success with sales of $3000. The artists were also able to do some serious networking and formulate ideas for the future.

Many thanks to all involved who made this a success. A special thank you to Lori Borraccio Morris who was in charge of the amazing chalk board murals that encouraged children (and adults) to participate as artists in this show. Show photos by Zabel Belian are on our website.
