For the Love of Art

It has been so gratifying the response to the latest Amherst Biennial and that the Town of Amherst is making Matt Evald Johnson's sculpture a permanent installation in Kendrick Park  More good news, the Amherst Cultural council just awarded the Amherst Public Arts Commission a $1,000 grant towards the purchase of this sculpture. This brings the grand total raised to $7,000 with only $3,000 left to raise to make Portal a permanent installation for our community park.We will be launching a fundraising campaign on Valentine's Day. Check out Amherst Biennial webpage for details and gifts.:

Also I've continued updating the Amherst Biennial website with recent accomplishments of the Biennial artists, exciting things being created by Nancy Winship Milliken in Boston' and wonderful collaboration with Rosalyn Driscoll & Sarah Bliss coming soon.  The Biennial also recently received a nice review in Big Red and Shiny
