People all across the Wheeling area now have the opportunity to buy some colorful new t-shirts and help out a great cause all at the same time.
The online art design business Wheeling Threads is nearing its one year anniversary. To celebrate, they have invited several local artists to submit original t-shirt designs. Each design expresses that artist’s take on the Wheeling area.
There are 13 different designs, that include local landmarks and well-known individuals.
They will be selling those t-shirts online with proceeds going to three different non-profit organizations, including NAMI Greater Wheeling, Youth Services Systems and the YWCA.
“I just told them to create something that is Wheeling-centric or West Virginia-centric and roll with it,” said Wheeling Threads Owner Daniel Finsley. “The art that they provided us with is nothing short of incredible. Just one after another jaw-dropping digital illustration. It’s wild, definitely fun to look at.”
To check out the t-shirts and designs just go to their website WheelingThreads.com and click on the “local artists collection” option.
