ArtOrg reached the 10,000th person taught at its small steamroller printing event called the “Thousand Print Summer” at the Minneapolis Monarch Festival today. Traveling to one-hundred-sixteen venues across the State of Minnesota, the event started on a rainy day at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in 2006, expanded due to an important Project Grant from Forecast Public Art in 2008, and was in part fueled by the passage of the so-called Arts and Cultural Legacy Amendment for the State of Minnesota. We are very proud to have reached such a milestone, and reach on a consistent basis, a yearly educational outreach of over 1000 students per year. Thanks, Minnesota, and congratulations to all of the artist who made beautiful printed artworks. “This activity is funded through the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.”
