The Medusa Fine Arts Project and Public Art Space, aka The Medusa Project Inc, a 501(c)3 Incorporation NEEDS YOU
To enumerate: We will purchase a property on Main Street and start a revitalization project to develop and implement sustainable arts knowledge base.The planned exhibition space will beautify the village of Medusa, create jobs, and increase property values for local owners. The project’s larger mission is to make the art world accessible to a rural community. This new idea introduces a positive and creative energy to an economically challenged area. Furthermore, the Medusa Cafe + Mercantile will be a tourist attraction pulling shoppers with disposable income from Hudson, NYC, Boston, Albany , NJ etc.
Board Members Needed:
An arts experience will become as regular to local residents as farm chores. So, milk a cow, then take a free 4×5 polaroid class at the Art Space. That’s our idea. By the same token, workshops will be free to residents. Exhibiting artists will give a collaborative talk and demonstration about their work on Saturday mornings.A public gallery space is planned. Rotating disciplines will be invited to install a public series.
Every resident is offered free arts programming. Also, with each art show mounted, a fine art piece is donated by a participating artist and raffled off at the end of the exhibit. A gift from artist to town. We counter the idea that creating, collecting or looking at art is only for those with privilege.
Exhibit themes are currently invitation only. However we plan to open up a application process by committee. A budget of funding is available upon request.
