ArtScapes is a celebration of all things arts in Mansfield to support grants and scholarships for our Mansfield artists, arts organizations and arts students. We will wow you with a fine art display as you enter, live painting by Doug Peak throughout the event, pop-up performances featuring recent grant recipients from The Family D.R.E.A.M Dance Center, The Fleetwood Theater Project, and poet Alicia Azahar, and extravagantly decorated arts-themed tables. Enjoy the event by sampling an "Art-ini", voting on your favorite table, tasting a variety of hors d'oeuvres and gourmet dessert from local bakeries, and purchasing a piece of art, taking a chance on one of our games, or bidding on our silent and live auction items.
As our economy and the arts come back after the pandemic, funding to support the arts is essential to get not just our artists, but our whole community back to normal. Performing and visual artists were without work for over a year. Now they have the opportunity to do what they do best - bring people together - and they've got lots of ideas and projects that will rejuvenate our community. Our last grant cycle saw 9 new project ideas for our community and $18,000 in requested funds. We need you to make these ideas a reality. Business or cocktail attire is requested at this elegant evening party.
