“This event is simply a way to continue to encourage artists, foster their growth, and connect with the community. We pay all of our artists, making the event cost significantly more than we make, but I believe that art is worth the investment. I can't expect an artist to take me seriously if I don't take them seriously, and I want to make paying artists more of an expected thing. Because I am lucky enough to get this grant from Art House Cares and have a sponsorship with Rec philly, I am in a position to be able to put this event together and join my various art communities as well as give my artists an opportunity. I can only pay that blessing forward.” said Event Curator Samantha Benvissuto (SammyB).
This program is supported by Art House Cares, a grant program by Art House Productions in Jersey City.
