Introducing our new non-profit: BigTown Projects
April 10, 2013
I am delighted to announce the formation of our new non-profit: BigTown Projects, Inc. and send a special thank you to The Gordon and Harriet Greenfield Family Foundation for their generous donation that has energized our efforts and our potential to expand the cultural arts programming here at 99 North Main Street. Thank you!
2013 marks the tenth year anniversary of BigTown Gallery. With the addition of Bigtown Projects we will now be able to align our programming with neighboring non-profit cultural arts organizations. My hope is to expand into partnerships that provide opportunities bringing vitality, inspiration and prosperity through the arts to our rural communities. I am very grateful to our board of advisors: Bill Barrette, Ed Koren, Doon Hinderyckx and Kathryn Schenkman for their work in shepherding this expansive new direction.
My hope is that you will continue to participate in all of BigTown’s offerings.
Come see us soon!
