Thanks to your generosity we were able to accomplish the following in 2016:

  • Provided services to close to 500 youth, artists, families and community members through workshops, exhibitions and community service projects
  • Increased the number of high school students in our ArtLab internship from 7 to 14, increasing the likelihood they will graduate from high school and will plot a successful path, post-graduation
  • Recruited and trained 12 mentors to pair with our juniors and seniors
  • Our three senior ArtLab interns graduated from high school, maintaining our 99.97% high school graduation rate
  • Launched a series of pop-up exhibition opportunities for artists in The Temple building (our home)
  • Cleaned up and streamlined our database
  • Welcomed resident artists from Denver, Chicago, South Korea and Brooklyn
  • Created paid Lead Artists work for five local artists
  • Welcomed a new executive director, artistic director, youth programming coordinator and three program assistants

Thank you!
