We recognize ArtPop Street Gallery, a sister public art non-profit across the border, and give a proud shout out to WAI board member and artist, Caroline Rust (Ward).
A work of art by Caroline has been selected to be on billboards and media platforms in Charlotte, NC, and surrounding counties in North Carolina and South Caroline, including York County, throughout 2021. Caroline's work joins that of 19 other artists/designers, a handful from York County, for display. The public art project is called ArtPop Street Gallery. As a sister public art non-profit, APSG promotes the work of local artists/designers in the states which sponsor a program. Learn more at www.artpopstreetgallery.com.

This fall, WAI board member, Nicole Davenport, exhibited her Master's research in an exhibition entitled Future Study and was featured in the Fall 2020 edition of Winthrop Magazine. Future Study transformed the Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery into a research lab to explore her Master of Arts in Arts Administration capstone entitled “Engaging Changing Audiences in Southeastern Museums and Galleries.” In the space, Davenport visually shared her capstone exploration which evolved during the course of the exhibition through ongoing study and findings documented on Instagram @FutureStudyLab.
