Holiday cards created by students at Youngstown State University’s SMARTS — Students Motivated by the Arts — are available for purchase.
This year’s cards feature two designs. One has a photograph of a Penguin on the cover, with the inside reading, “Happy Holidays.” The second design is a drawing of a hand giving the “Peace” sign and is blank inside.
The cards are six for $5 or 100 for $50, plus tax and shipping if applicable. The cards can be purchased by contacting Becky Keck, SMARTS director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
They also will be available at the SMARTS Store at 258 Federal Plaza West downtown. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
A SMARTS Holiday Open House reception will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday. Cake and punch will be served.
Proceeds from the SMARTS holiday cards and the SMARTS Store support SMARTS programming. For more information, visit YSU SMARTS online or call 330-941-ARTS.
