The Eighth Annual National Arts Program® Exhibition beautifully displayed at the Mexican American Cultural Center in Austin, Texas.
The Eighth Annual NAP Exhibit for City of Austin employees and their family members was beautifully displayed at the Mexican American Cultural Center once again. With 135 pieces of artwork from 79 artists, the entire gallery space was lined with all sizes and mediums of artwork.
The National Arts Program® was pleased to welcome our first venue in the state of North Dakota; Grand Forks Air Force Base (GFAFB). GFAFB is not only the first venue in the state, but is also the first military base to join the NAP.
On a chilly Sunday in December, the Cultural and Heritage Commission in Camden County was shoulder to shoulder with participating artists from this year’s NAP Show. Sandra Turner-Barnes and Bruce Garrity did a tremendous job fitting all the artwork into the space. In his opening remarks, Bruce said, "I hang a lot of shows in Camden and always know the artists and their work, but with the NAP, you never know what you are going to get!"
Chris Luciani is not only the Cultural Arts Manager for the City of Cleveland, he has been coordinating the National Arts Program® for the City of Cleveland, OH since its inception into the program twelve years ago. Each year Chris continues to expand and grow the exhibition with a record breaking 213 participating artists in 2010.
