THANK YOU + A Running List of Art Orgs You Can Support

So much more has happened in the last three months than I could have ever expected. From winning the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art’s Good ‘N Plenty Award, to hearing feedback from artists and fans, aftrART is much further along than I envisioned when I first had the idea to start this project.

 

I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to everyone that has supported this project, especially SMoCA and everyone that attended the Good ‘N Plenty Event back in October.

 

Not only did I want to say thanks, but I also wanted to share some thoughts on the importance of supporting arts organizations, museums, and centers. If you’re lucky enough to have some of these resources in your community, I really encourage you to take the time and go. These places exist to foster culture and enrich communities with art, and as artists and creatives, we owe it to them to participate!

9 BIG Ideas to Explore

If you haven’t noticed yet, this first month of content is about building the foundation of aftrART. I am all about clarity, and I want to make sure you have a good understanding of what we’re getting into here.

 

However, I’ve failed to mention the most important part.

 

Sure I’ve hinted at it here and there, but I know you must be wondering…

 

What exactly do I plan on doing here?

 

What subject matter am I covering? What topics can you expect to learn about on aftrART?

 

aftrART: Why It’s Here & What to Expect

This is one of the very first videos I recorded for aftrART, long before it ever even occurred to me that my digital camera wasn’t equipped to handle video. Notice the weird coloring and occasional out-of-focus clips?

 

Yup, that’s exactly why I ended up applying for a grant.

 

But that’s besides the point.

 

In this video, I start to dig a little deeper into why I wanted to start this project. Check it out!
