Dear Friends of the Art Center,

As we approach the annual GiveLocalNRV Day of Giving that kicks of at noon on June 26th, we reflect on the progress and resilience we've shown over the past year - thanks to you! Recovery from last year's devastating fire was an opportunity to rethink our space. We invite you to come and see our improvements at our Open House on June 15. Among the changes are several new studios for Fiber Arts, Stained Glass, and Digital Fabrication Art Fab Lab. 

We believe that all people have the right to fully participate in the arts and have committed ourselves to furthering inclusivity and access for all ages and abilities at the Floyd Center for the Arts. In spite of the fire, we have increased programs for youth by 40% with the number of After School Arts and Homeschool Arts sessions nearly doubled! We address economic barriers by offering scholarships for all ages, free concert tickets for students, free admission to events, and affordable studio and equipment rentals. Our new Arts4All program brings the joy of creativity and learning in the arts to adults with physical and developmental disabilities.

The arts unify us and amplify our efforts. When we partner with others and support one another, all of us are stronger and more effective. The Floyd Center for the Arts was proud to collaborate and help bring back the Empty Bowls event to benefit the Floyd Community Action Backpack Program. The 2nd annual Floyd Living Traditions Festival to be held August 24th will once again bring together all of Floyd's leading arts organizations along with more than a dozen other community organizations for a celebration of Floyd's rich heritage of traditional crafts and music.

Despite challenges, the Floyd Center for the Arts has been changing and growing to serve our community with programs and events with greater reach and impact. Your generous donation to the Floyd Center for the Arts during the GiveLocal RV campaign will directly impact our ability to continue offering quality art exhibitions, enriching events, and innovative educational opportunities. Early giving for the GiveLocalNRV campaign starts on June 1st, and the deadline to give is June 27th at noon.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to the arts in our community.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Keela Dooley Marshall
