We're Back

Posted by Carolina on Feb 16th 2017

Hello all you Poverty and the Arts Blog readers out there! I am Carolina Smith, the brand new writing intern at Poverty & the Arts. You can and should expect to hear a lot from me in the coming months.

After a short (okay, long) hiatus from our blog we are back! Over the past year (okay, years) we have been working on growing our Artist Collective and community impact (Fun-fact: Since you’ve last heard from us we have grown from 7 to 13 active artists in our Artist Collective).

Moving forward, please stay tuned to the now active blog to receive information about upcoming events and share-worthy stories about any and all things related to Poverty & the Arts.

Speaking of which, we must give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to our friends: Stephen Day, Jordy Searcy, and CAMM, for partnering with us at their show tonight (February 17, 2017, The High Watt, 8 PM, $7, and FYI: it’s no doubt going to be killer)! We will have original artwork from artists in our Artist Collective along with Poverty and the Arts merchandise featured at the show. We are thrilled and thankful to partner with such awesome musicians!

Additionally, our annual Gold Key Gala is coming up on February 25th (a mere week and one day away)! This event will include live jazz, a silent auction (with items from many amazing local companies), food and drinks galore, live painting, and of course, beautiful and original artwork from artists in our collective. To purchase tickets for the gala please visit:

As we have finally gotten settled into 2017, we can’t wait to see what all this year has in store for us. If you feel the same way, STAY TUNED!
