BEYOND THE GLASS! PART FOUR

BEYOND THE GLASS! PART FOUR

Beyond the Glass is a God-breathed idea? I spent many years being a wife & mom. I gave so much to my family that I sacrificed my own desires and aspirations. With my daughter off to college I spent much of my time asking God to give me something of substance, something I could grow and that would bless others.
 

One day I woke up and it came to me...paint bottles!, and although it may have sound a little strange, It was different and I did exactly that!! Yes, there were challenges and lessons learned along the way but when Gods got a plan and you are willing, all things are possible. The mission of Beyond the Glass is to give people a moment of Freedom to express art from deep within and create lasting memories.

In this presentation, guest will learn how to clean labels from wine bottles and decorate for an artistic masterpiece in their home or office.

This event is FREE, and open to the public. RSVP is strongly encouraged.

PUBLIC ART CHALLENGE | PUBLIC VIEWING

  • ArtHouse: A Social Kitchen (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In October 2014, Bloomberg Philanthropies invited mayors to collaborate with artists and arts organizations to develop innovative projects that engage residents and attract visitors. 237 cities submitted proposals, affirming the many ways in which the arts can celebrate, address, and advance critical urban issues. In March 2015, Bloomberg Philanthropies announced 12 finalist cities that presented innovative ideas and were poised to make significant local impact. These proposals covered a range of areas such as revitalization of decayed downtown areas, underutilized waterfronts, and vacant neighborhoods. They also addressed other social issues including civil rights, neighborhood safety, environmental sustainability, and promoting city identity.

In June 2015, the Public Art Challenge selected four winning teams to receive $1 million each over the next two years: Gary, IN; Los Angeles, CA; Spartanburg, SC; and a collaborative team from Albany, Schenectady and Troy, NY.

Visit arthouse to view photos of each of the four winning teams.  This is a self-guided walk inside the building during daily business hours from 11am - 3pm, Monday through Friday. The viewing is approximately 15 minutes to view all four team pictures.
