Knight Arts Challenge Finalist!!

I'm super excited to announce that I am a finalist for the Knight Arts Challenge! Here is the project I proposed:

Darla Jackson: to facilitate the safe creation and public exhibition of the artwork of Philadelphia’s sculptors by starting a “sculpture gym,” where artists can access heavy-duty tools and storage space and get one-on-one help with projects.

63 finalists were chosen from the 1,752 applications submitted (!!!) Among them are the PMA, The Barnes Foundation, The Fairmount Park Art Association, theartblog.org, the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival/Philly Fringe, Vox Populi and many more!

Here is a link to the article listing the 63 finalists and their project descriptions. I'm looking forward to alot of these projects going through and making the Philadelphia Arts Scene even more amazing!
