ArtCentral’s impact through two years

ArtCentral: Two Years!

By Elizabeth Freer
Matthews Opera House, ArtCentral Manager

Elizabeth Freer, ArtCentral Mgr.

It seems hard to believe that ArtCentral – the Bush Foundation Community Innovation Grant awarded to The Matthews Opera House and Arts Center in 2016 – has been underway for two years. Good, hard, and important learning and work has taken place and we will continue to see the impacts of these efforts in our community in the coming years.

The grant has supported many projects including Cardboard Chaos; Linking Fences in the summer of 2017, and again in 2018; two sets of Painted Crosswalks; RE:Create – a Creative Community Makerspace; ArtCentral Film Festival: Season One and Season Two, including discussions following each of the eight films, and a photography exhibit; Art of My Life: A Multimedia Celebration of our Creative Soul; this monthly column, and more.
