On Tuesday, July 24th, RIDE Solutions’ Art by Bus program made a special presentation to the West End Center for Youth on behalf of artist David Ramey Sr.
Mr. Ramey is well know for his colored pencil drawing of the former Henry Street. All of these drawings were done by memory, almost 40 years later, and are some of the only images we have of that previously bustling part of town.
RIDE Solutions was able to donate $175 to the West End Center from proceeds of the Art by Bus chapbook sales. The next round of proceeds will be donated to the Oliver White Hill Foundation which is an organization that was very close to the heart David Ramey Sr.
