Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg raised more than $18,000 at its recent Artists Going Live fundraiser to aid visual arts in the community.
The guild will use the funds for hosting collaborative events for professional artists to mentor aspiring artists.
The organization plans to create a platform for artists to share knowledge about creating, presenting and promoting themselves and their works. It also plans to use fundraiser proceeds to assist outreach programs for educational institutions in the region.
“This fundraiser was a very worthwhile and needed event for the guild,” said Artists Going Live Committee Member Brandi Dice. “The amount raised goes to show just how much support we have for the arts in our community.”
