................a Venue of expression.
Our ultimate mission is to foster arts through the promotion and fundraising of community art programs and projects. We value education and public awareness of arts and culture, and strongly promote an emphasis on participation. We will present and produce innovative projects that will focus on increasing community awareness, understanding, and appreciation of art and culture. While coordinating shared resources to reach mutually beneficial goals we will work with the community by collaborating with multiple local artists to help raise and leverage funds that create opportunities for them to develop and create new art.
An artist co-op, fun, right! The Venue will be sponsoring an activity on Friday, September 21st 5-10. The Venue will furnish canvas and materials for local artists to ban together and create individual pieces of art that will be displayed the day of the Venue festival on Oct. 6th.
