FIRST FRIDAY / Momentum 16th Anniversary

FIRST FRIDAY / Momentum 16th Anniversary Mainframe Studios | 09/30/2020

16TH ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION // You are invited! Please join us for Community Support Advocate's annual juried exhibition Momentum: Works of Growth & Recovery that honors artists living with disabilities and mental health diagnoses.

This year's guest juror is Rachel Buse. The exhibition will be on view during First Friday ... and virtually with the help of Bruce James Bales.

COVID-19 hit CSA's award-winning Momentum Art Program hard. They deliver free supplies, hold one-on-one studio sessions, produce online classes, provide opportunities like this impactful exhibition and other creative endeavors. You are invited to help empower artists to achieve growth and resilience through art by showing your support and purchasing works.
