We are excited to announce that ArtSpark Eugene has been awarded this year’s ABAE Arts and Business Partnership of the Year!
Through this ongoing initiative, the Rotary Club of Eugene, Eugene Education Foundation, Eugene School District 4J and multiple sponsors and contributors are working together to provide every elementary school in the Eugene School District 4J with high-quality arts education opportunities through Lane Arts Council’s artist residency program.
For the 2017-2018 school year, all twenty 4J elementary schools will receive an ArtSpark funded artist residency, with the ten Title I elementary schools each receiving two artist residencies, for a total of 30 residencies allocated for the school year. This program will reach 7,400 students and provide more than 1,000 hours of quality arts education.
As champions for arts education, these organizations came together around the belief that the arts are essential for learning and developing a well-rounded education. In April 2018, the Rotary Club of Eugene hosted the second annual ArtSpark gala event.
We are grateful for our partnership with Rotary Club of Eugene, Eugene Education Foundation and Eugene School District 4J, and appreciate the Arts & Business Alliance of Eugene (ABAE) for recognizing this impactful initiative bringing art to Eugene schools.
