GR State of the Arts (Private Event)

GR SOTA Dinner and Discussion

ArtXchangeGR exists to champion art in our city, actively promote a vibrant artists community, and absorb the masses into our local brand of art.  It is vitally important that the artists we represent and those who support the "Art Everywhere Movement" are included in the conversations to build an artist-centric community.  

Invitation Only Event

The GR State of the Arts Dinner & Discussion is a live forum for creatives to share their insights, experiences, and passion for the arts, as well as find ways to boost the city's art credentials, build a strong arts economy, and propel the "Art Everywhere Movement."
