SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - An event set for Friday in Sioux Falls is turning a painful disease into beautiful pieces of art.
"Art for Arthritis" pairs victims of juvenile arthritis with local mentor artists.
Artists' works will be auctioned off Friday night to raise money in hopes of finding a cure. A mentor artist KSFY spoke with said she is grateful to be a part of this experience.
"Working with the children is awesome, I think I benefit more than they do because it's just a humbling experience to see their creativity, see how they attack problems and experiment," Kelly Tadlock said. "They look at things differently than adults do, so it's just refreshing to see them grow and learn as artists."
"Art for Arthritis' also features dinner, a silent auction, and a diamond dig. Doors open at 5 p.m. and the program begins at 6 p.m. in the Startlight Room of the Holiday Inn in downtown Sioux Falls.
