Join us for the final Get Artistic Art Party of the summer at Creature Comforts! More information about the Get Artistic program and its grant opportunities can be found online.
This free, public event will feature the finalists for our first-ever Get Artistic DIY Fund Grant in a “DIY Fair”, a science fair-style showcase of local artist-led project presentations. The event also closes out the CCBC Gallery show The Broadside Exhibition Project: Verse 2 with poetry readings and a communal printmaking activity.
