Participate in a raffle for a child's spot in Summer Art Day Camp at the Sun Gallery (seven different weeks available during July and August).
This event is free, with donations gratefully accepted by the Sun Gallery, Hayward's longest standing non-profit arts organization. Residents and visitors enjoy its prominent Art Education Program, picturesque Gallery Shop and year-round series of highly respected exhibitions that enrich the community's cultural life and promote art as the universal language between cultures, income levels and ages.
