Entrepreneurship SpeakHER Series: Crossroads of Art and Social Impact with Carol Hofgartner
November 3, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for our second Fall session of the Entrepreneurship SpeakHER Series on November 3, 2022 featuring Carol Hofgartner, Founder of Art Road
Carol Hofgartner is the Founder and Executive Director of Art Road Nonprofit. Since 2004, Art Road has brought art class back to over 20,000 students in Detroit Public Schools that would otherwise not have art in their curriculum. Art Road was created after Carol went to a career day at Weatherby Elementary School in Detroit to talk to the students about her career in architecture and learned that the students did not have art class. That day changed her life and career path from architecture to the idea, then the reality of bringing art class back to students. Carol is giving students what she has in her life, a sense of joy and accomplishment through art. Over the years hundreds of volunteers have touched the lives of the students, by making art alongside them in the art rooms. It is with utmost pride that Art Road continues to enrich the lives of the students and their community.
