30 Years of Arts & Culture ~ 30 Days of Giving
Spring has sprung and so has our Spring Supporter Drive. In 1985 artists and community members created the Longmont Council for the Arts, now Arts Longmont. June 1st begins our 30 Days of Giving with a goal of $25,000.
With our new vision to Incubate, Advocate, and Inspire the community we need your support to make it a lasting reality. Our Arts Education plan is in full swing starting with the Arts Longmont District Art Awards. A committee of artists and arts professionals selected 1st , 2nd & 3rd place from the St. Vrain Valley School District Art Show in the the K-2, 3-5, 6-8 & 9-12 categories. The winner’s art was exhibited at the Muse Gallery, May 7-16, with an awards ceremony on May 7th from 7-8pm.
Our Arts Incubation task force has been working on developing our incubation plan for 2016. Our eight programs continue to flourish with Friday Afternoon Concerts & Art Shows opening its 2015/2016 season in October in the Longmont Museum’s new auditorium. The move to the new auditorium will allow us to take an already high quality program and make it better by improving the audience experience. We are very excited to partner with the Longmont Museum this year and in the future.
We continue to count on your support because together we can Incubate, Advocate, and Inspire for the community. New this year is our “Green Supporter.” By making a recurring monthly donation you become a Green Supporter. No paper renewals or remembering to write a check and mail it. For a $10/month you can be a Best Friend of the Arts supporter. Go Green with us today! Donate now via the Colorado Gives website http://bit.ly/1vzDytI
