Transforming rocks into art.
Quartzsite, AZ –Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite (PNQ) sponsors their first event, “Rockin’ in Quartzsite! A Celebration of the Arts” on Saturday, October 24, 2009. Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite kicks off this new public art event with the opening of the “Rock Motel”, where “Boulder Art Pieces” will be painted and decorated by local artists.
Integrating National Make a Difference Day, PNQ brings together the Quartzsite Women’s Club’s “Walk for Education” and the Red Hat Run-Abouts’ “Walk for Cancer Research”. Both walk-a-thons will end at the “Rock Motel”, a converted warehouse where the painting and fun happens!

Admission is only $1 plus one non-perishable food item for Quartzsite Food Bank. Participants in the two walk-a-thons get in free.

On Saturday, March 6, PNQ holds a “Rock Auction” to find new homes for the “Boulder Art Pieces” and the People’s Choice Award will be announced.
