ALTON – Dusty prairie winds will be galloping through the Jacoby Arts Center as the Legendary Mustang Sanctuary Exhibit trots into its doors.
Through May 2, the arts center will play host to Dark Horse Art Works’ latest exhibit, featuring the work of Eric Stauffer, Kerry Vincent, Lynn Steinbach, Meg Fredricks and Sandy Schulz of Earthen Wheel.
All pieces can be acquired for a donation to the Legendary Mustang Sanctuary, a not-for-profit organization in Alhambra, Ill.
“Our organization depends solely on donations to support our sanctuary for the wild mustangs and burros,” owner Shawn Lewis said. “Thanks to the generous donations from individuals and local businesses, we are able to care for the abused and mistreated mustangs.”
Many of the pieces are from Dark Horse’s Limited Edition Series and are tax-deductible.
“This exhibit and fund-raiser are an opportunity to learn the history of and help sustain an American iconic legend,” Dark Horse Art Works founder Eric Stauffer said. “Before becoming a muscle car, before becoming a symbol of the American West, this beautiful and sturdy breed of horse was given to the indigenous tribes of America. Today, through Shawn and Kathy Lewis, we can learn how to protect and promote this American legend called the mustang.”
