We are excited to announce our 2nd Annual Fill Your Plate Benefit for Resident Arts on November 2, from 6-9pm at Riechmann Pavilion, Stephens Lake Park.
This event will feature live music, artist presentations, delicious food and drink, an art auction and raffle. Funds raised at this event will help to sustain our programs and services.
In 2016 we touched the lives of nearly 2,000 individuals through several programs: The After-school Teen Artist Residency, The Emerging Artist Residency, The Professional Development Workshops, and exhibitions which focus on the work of marginalized artists, as well as other programs and services which aim to help artists live, work, and thrive locally. Join us to help sustain and grow these meaningful programs.
“[Resident Arts] helped me to know how to price my work and how to hang my work. Without them, I think we would lose a big part of Columbia’s art community.” – local artist, Jessie Donovan
