Ben's Bells Project expands to Phoenix

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Tucson-based Ben's Bells Project is joining the Roosevelt Row Arts district in Phoenix.

On Friday, Ben's Bells will hold a grand opening celebration with kindness themed activities, temporary tattoos, refreshments and giveaways, according to a news release.

The grand opening will take place from 6-9 p.m. at 417 East Roosevelt St.

"We wanted to find a place with a lot of character and soul that we couldn't be happier with the space," said Ben's Bells Project Executive Director and Founder Jeannette Mare in the release.

Ben's Bells focuses on the impact of intentional kindness by inspiring, educating, and motivating members of the community. It provides educational programming for children and adults, open art studies and community mosaic mural installations.

It was founded in 2003 after the death of Jeannette Mare's two year old son, Ben.
