ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- With so much violence around us, local artists are using their creativity to bring others comfort.
Twenty-six pieces of art will be on display this weekend at the Heart of Rockford Art for Healing event. We're invited to sponsor the art, which will be donated to Newtown, Connecticut in honor of the 26 teachers and students killed. Proceeds will be mostly split between the organization "Healing Newtown" and Ceasefire Rockford.
The event is this Saturday at 6p.m inside Rockford College's Regents Hall.
