Is Triangle ArtWorks Having an Impact? Our Community Says Yes!

Although ArtWorks is only 5 years in, we are already making a difference in the Triangle.  See what our community has to say:

“We have an amazing community of creative people in the region but, for the most part, they labor alone. By encouraging collaboration, cross-pollination and growing resources, Triangle Art Works is filling a void in the local economy and providing support for our extensive arts cluster.” Dianne Reed, Chatham County Economic Development

“We need an organization to help us look beyond our next event or program and take stock in the collective riches we have as an arts community. We need help building a regional identity.” Leigh Ann Wilder, NCAC Arts in Communities

“I am particularly thankful for the real world, nuts-and-bolts approach that is the hallmark of their programming.”  Lynn York, Writer. Read More
