WCG Announces Scholarship for Creativity at Visual Arts Center of Richmond
What do Japanese pottery firing, steam roller wood cutting and glass fusing have in common? They’re all fascinating artistic activities the community can enjoy at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond (VisArts).
On March 2, West Cary Group announced its partnership with VisArts and its sponsorship of the Scholarship for Creativity – an award that gives adults the chance to take imaginative classes like these at the Center with the benefit of financial assistance. Now West Cary Group is pledging an additional $1 for each unique VisArts Facebook “Like” through April 2, up to $500.
“Our agency thought this would be a great way for the Richmond community to learn about and support the artistry and events that make VisArts special,” says Moses Foster, President and CEO of West Cary Group. “Plus, it gives West Cary Group the opportunity to do even more for a great organization and a great cause.”
Currently, the West Cary Group Scholarship for Creativity provides $2,000 to help adults attend studio classes – an amount that gives up to 20 people an outlet for artistic expression over the next year. Now the total could reach up to $2,500, meaning even more people can explore their inner creativity at VisArts.
“The support of the Richmond community is vital to our ability to do what we do and to provide crucial scholarship assistance to students in need,” says Ava Spece, President and CEO of VisArts. “West Cary Group’s support reminds us that the Richmond corporate community is remarkably compassionate. This is truly an exciting partnership for VisArts and our 50-year mission of engaging the community in the creative process through the arts!”
