Saint Paul Bagelry Gallery Grand Opening
Cardboardo was honored to be the featured artist at the first-ever gallery show at Saint Paul Bagelry from February 18 to March 10, 2021! They make amazing bagels and together we raised $676 for Community Driven Minnesota. Community Driven rescues food across the Twin Cities and gets them to soup kitchens and food shelves. Big thanks to Craig, Jimmy & Jason—huzzah!
“Working with Cardboardo on our first art fundraiser was a great experience and success! His sense of humor, low price point, and general great attitude was infectious and really lent to the success of fundraiser.”
“My family’s bagel shop and I worked with Cardboardo by doing a fundraiser for a local nonprofit (Community Driven) using Cardboardo art. Joel with Cardboardo was easy to work with and we made a ton of money for the fundraiser! The art is funny, affordable and very cool! Joel was super easy to communicate with and he made the whole process fun. Hoping to work with him again in the future. Thanks Cardboardo!”

On October 1-3, 2020, Cardboardo was part of the Solidarity Street Gallery Oct. 1-3 along Payne Avenue in Saint Paul. Art was exhibited at the East Side Freedom Library and $90 was raised for the library with art sales and online donations. Art, music, and dance—right on!
Cardboardo had a blast at the Greenway Glow on September 26th, 2020, even though the drizzle made us pack up our cardboard and paper art a few times. Here is a chicken in a tutu dancing with participants who were taking free art and then, if they wished, making a donation to the Sanctuary Supply Depot, which distributes needs to all unhoused encampments.
