Carbondale becomes a candidate Creative District

CONGRATULATIONS CARBONDALE!!! We are a candidate creative district with the state. (and we made the front page of the Post Independent for it: http://www.postindependent.com/news/11945671-113/carbondale-creative-arts-town)

Carbondale began a Creative Plan in 2013 focusing on connectivity and wayfinding, strengthening the creative industries which include businesses from publishing to local food production to culinary arts, as well as artists and designers, and marketing and branding.

The Creative District program through CCI, enourages communities to come together under a unified vision to encourage economy and growth through creative business. The next steps are underway. The public can view what has been accomplished so far, as well as comment at https://vulume.com/CCAH/954-carbondale-creative-plan

Current Exhibition: WTF? Wall, Table, Floor

Posted by DebColley on May 29, 2014  |   No Comments »

August 15-Sept 12
The WTF? Exhibition displays work by established artists, each working within their primary medium (clay or painting), to make new work specifically designed for display on the wall, the table, and the floor. Artists Frank McGuirk, Doug Casebeer, Jill Oberman, and Andrew Roberts-Gray will stretch to utilize and implement form, function, and aesthetic qualities in ways they have not done prior. Expected to be excited to see the “unveiling” of these new works made specifically for this exhibition.

Arts Explosion!
