ArtOrg’s 10th Birthday!

Attachment-1

ArtOrg was incorporated as a non-profit in the State of Minnesota exactly ten years ago today. Our many projects and educational events can be seen on our website, and we bring particular attention to our ongoing Thousand Print Summer program and our many past projects, We are particularly proud of three projects that were accessioned to permanent museum collections. We would also like to use this opportunity to recount some of our statistics: over 12 major projects creating some 100 artworks (43 artworks in museums), 10K educational prints created at 116 venues, 14K photos on Flickr in 300 albums with 400K views, 37 videos on Vimeo with 10K plays, 700 likes on Facebook, 250 posts and 250 static pages on our main website with over 100K views. We have amassed a wonderful collection of printmaking and other artmaking equipment. We have an ongoing project to renovate and move to a building we purchased in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. We remain thankful for the art-related grants we have received, most notably a $62K grant from the Minnesota Arts Board. Our mission remains clear to focus on education and projects which bring artists together to collaborate.
