HOW IS TALL GRASS ARTS ASSOCIATION FUNDED?
Tall Grass Arts Association is a not-for-profit organization operated by a volunteer Board of Directors. It operates with a part-time Administrative Director, School Director and many unpaid volunteers. It derives its funding from individual and corporate memberships, program sponsorship, public and private grants, income-producing programs such as the Beaux Arts Ball, classes, the art fair and gallery sales.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT TALL GRASS?
A sign on the outside wall of a gallery in Prague proclaims, “If a nation’s culture survives, so, too, does the nation.” The same can be said of a region. Tall Grass is the visual arts organization in the region dedicated to keeping the arts alive. Its long-term success enriches our communities, adding value to our homes, our neighborhoods and our lives.
