McAllen, TX – The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) has organized the first-ever Empty Barrels: A Food & Fund Drive to benefit the Food Bank RGV Inc. Empty Barrels is a collaborative project that aims to bring artists and communities together to raise awareness and funds to fight hunger in the RGV. Empty Barrels is a special project of the 12th Annual Night at the Brew-seum organized by the IMAS.

Six wine and whiskey barrels have been donated by 5×5 Brewing Co. in Mission, TX, and Hilmy Cellars in Fredericksburg, TX, to serve as artists’ canvases and then food donation collection vessels. Local artists answered an open call to participate in this project and are transforming these barrels with their unique art form. Project partners include Clark Chevrolet, Clark Knapp Honda and L&F Distributors.
