tart::projects submitted by Kimberly Adams
tart::projects is a newly formed organization that is geared towards promoting excellence in the arts. The long term goal of tart::projects is to form a multi-disciplinary artist-in-residency program that would house approximately twenty emerging artists at one time from all over the world with lengths of stays varying. The artist-in-residence program has the potential house more than 250 artists in a year with residencies lasting anywhere from two weeks to six weeks with the average stay being four weeks. Before this can become a reality, tart::projects needs to build in a way so it can sustain. In order to do that, we will be holding a number of events (specifics below) yearly that promote our local artists along with artists in the Midwestern region.
