Yes, Assets for Artists is officially spilling over state borders!
The Mayor and City Council in Portland, ME, have just approved funding to Creative Portland (which is soon to be merged with the Portland Arts & Cultural Alliance) to partner with Assets for Artists to enroll our first 10 Portland-based artists during the second half of 2012.
Check out the article in the Portland Daily Sun announcing the funding. We can’t wait to start working with the Creative Portland team and some of the incredible artists in Portland. (By the way, Creative Portland has put together an impressive gateway to its creative community at creativeportland.me, which really puts the spotlight on individual artist-entrepreneurs. The rest of us could learn a lot from that project.)
