Artists Meet & Greet Reception
They say a smile and handshake cost nothing. For the artists attending the
grants reception, a grip and grin moment may have helped to bring in a few
dollars.
Grant recipients awarded for fiscal year 2018 got together to share and
celebrate at a reception in June. The Prince George’s Arts & Humanities
Council hosted the occasion at Art Works Now in Hyattsville on a perfect
Saturday afternoon in June in order to give artists a chance to connect with
one another and bond around the joys – and challenges – of getting funded so
they can focus on getting the best work done.
Kristina Lyles, Program Manager at PGAHC, was pleased with the turnout of
nearly 30 local artists who enjoyed light refreshments. “The meet and greet
reception was a success! The artists truly enjoyed meeting one another and
discussing their grant projects.”
Conversations ranged from finding new methods to obtain funding and the
next grant season to the excitement around new projects around the region.
Please stay tuned for fiscal year 2019 grant information. The grant cycle is
scheduled to begin in Fall 2018.
