Pro Arts invited Elizabeth Deegan of Project Greenville to create a show in our ART150 Gallery as a way of thanking her for the many years she has worked building community through the visual arts and to highlight the talents of the artists living and working in the underserved area of Greenville.
With Love from Project Greenville features artists who live, work, grew up in–or have significant ties to–the Greenville area as well as those who have been long-time supporters and participants of Project Greenville. These artists have been contributing to art accessibility for the Greenville area for years, whether via participating with us or in their own endeavors and it’s my pleasure to try to share this opportunity with them.
I hope in a tiny way this show can act as a small bridge between neighborhoods–the same way that I started Project Greenville with the two main goals that it would A. Give people in Greenville the opportunity to see art but it would also B. Cause people who didn’t know Greenville well to visit and explore beyond some of the more sensationalized headlines, I hope this show might help folks in Greenville come visit something that might happen to be downtown but actually has them in mind (and heart) and welcomes them–as a key part of the participants and audience–to come and explore an area they may feel detached from that’s every bit a part of their city and theirs to enjoy too.
