Taking it to the Streets! Preview of TRAG’s Potential “Storefront Art Galleries and Events”
On May 28th TRAG applied for a grant to bring artwork to the streets of Oregon City. The idea is to transform the brown paper that normally covers the storefronts of vacant space into works of Art. Artists will be compensated for their work. Additionally, the grant will include money to support 4 pop-up art events inside a vacant space to take place over the next year. Of course, TRAG will be following all the rules and regulations of social distancing as Oregon reopens. We will know if TRAG was awarded the grant money by the end of June.
If you are interested in participating in this exciting venture, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking for people that can brainstorm what kind of artwork we can offer, marketing the sites, participating with their art (all mediums will be considered), and volunteering for the artwork installation, take-down and events. I would like to hit the ground running if we are awarded the grant.
Keep your fingers crossed – and Thank you!
President, Three Rivers Artist Guild
