From an initial pool of over 2,700 written applications, 167 were shortlisted for interviews with reviewers, and from that pool the final 98 recipients were selected. Ten artists from Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, Wyoming (GLOW) and Monroe and Erie counties joined, proposing artistic development for our upstate region and were the recipients of this major funding. The recipient organizations are GO ART!, Genesee-Orleans Regional Arts Council; ACWC, Arts Council for Wyoming County; and GVCA, Genesee Valley Arts Council. Our group collaborative is aptly named the ‘GLOWcreatives.’
Each Glow Creative artist offer classes, programs, and workshops throughout the year.
