Donations and Sponsorships have helped us accomplish...

Through the years, we have been able to create programs for art education for children in elementary and junior high. Artists from the area donate their time to host our adult workshops. Our annual "Music in the Burg" free summer concert series is made possible by the sponsors and in-kind donations by those in the community.
