Donate to help the artists who lost their work

On Thursday July 28th, a true flash flood poured through our facility in St. Louis. Third Degree is a public access glass art studio and gallery. We have over 30 artists whose work was in our gallery when the flood burst through our doors, quite literally. Nearly all of the work was destroyed. We are still taking inventory, but there was over $200,000 of work on the floor. We'll be surprised if there is $50,000 that survived.

Unfortunately, our insurance will not cover any losses. Nothing. Damage to the building, the work of the artists. Nothing.

This fund is to benefit the artists directly. The funds will be withdrawn into our company account in the coming days and distributed directly to the artists in proportion to their losses. We are working to inventory the remaining art work to confirm the losses per individual artist, so we can attempt make them whole.

The business will survive and thanks to the unbelievable support of the artists in our community, after just 48 hours we believe we will be able to open the doors again, very soon, for shopping and for events like weddings, galas and more.

Help us help them.
