Building Community at Starbucks
“We went to Starbucks and I helped take down pictures and talked to people about our artwork. I’m so happy to help out. We measured the art and I used the level to put up pictures. It makes me feel happy to go out in the community and the coffee is pretty good, too!” -Joshua Wykes
Last week Josh Wykes assisted our Arts Coordinator installing artwork at three of our rotating Starbucks exhibitions. This is a great way for Josh, and other artists, to practice their professional and exhibition skills while also interacting with their local community. Rotating exhibtions and community partnerships with Starbucks and our other community galleries and venues expand our artists’ overall audience while creating a unique environment in local galleries, coffee shops, and retail settings.
Our community consists of an array of local businesses, professional artists, service providers, and national brands. Learn how you can become part of our community.
