Every year at this time I am given the opportunity to express my gratitude for all that you’ve done to support the work we do throughout the year. In reflecting on the year that is coming to a close, I’m doing a lot of mental sorting. How do we talk about all the good that has happened while acknowledging the challenges?
It was amazing to see everyone at our annual Fall Fundraiser! With the generous support from our sponsors and community, Art Works Now received over $100,000 in cash and in-kind support for our young artists!
The students divided into three teams to design and create three murals. The themes of the murals were Social Justice, The Environment, and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.)
It’s been a little over a month since the Art Works board of directors approved the Creative Day Policy where full time salaried staff at Art Works are urged to work 72 hours, create or learn for 8 hours, and get paid for 80 hours per pay period.
