?supports our collaboration with the City of Augusta on Art the Box, Augusta Magazine’s best new Civic Project of 2016! Starting in May 2015, 23 artists painted 19 Traffic Signal boxes to brighten up the landscape of the city, with plans for more!
?provides opportunities for artists to show their work and grow their business skills through the Aspirations for Artists. Aspirations is a program developed by the Arts Council that provides business workshops as well as Gallery opportunities.
