Artist in Residence Proposals Now Being Accepted

The Arts Council of Williamson County is now taking AIR proposals for Teaching Artists to work with high school students within the Williamson County School District. The Artist in Residence program was created to help art specialists dig deeper into a particular art medium, strengthen an arts skill or to explore new and exciting visual art concepts that might not otherwise be available. Please review the rules and tips for applying and for questions email nan@artscouncilwc.org. Applications by artists must be submitted by Friday, July 29, 2016. Through collaboration with the Williamson County School District, artists and teachers will be matched by mid August for projects to start by the Fall of 2016.

This program is funded in part by the Brentwood Women’s Club.

 


We came. We saw. We chalked.

Critter Invasion
Thank you to all the amazing artists who came out and drew their favorite doodle bugs interacting with the natural urban landscape in Downtown Franklin. These critters covered the streets, sidewalks and walls of Downtown Franklin, creating a whimsical art experience.  Thank you also to the
Heritage Foundation and the numerous retailers for allowing us to invade their space with art!
Check out some of the wonderful creations now.

 


A big thank you for The Big Payback!

Thank you for donating to us on May 3rd during The Big Payback. Benefiting Middle Tennessee non-profits, the third annual giving day on May 3 brought in more than $2.61 million thus far from 11,270 gifts, nearly matching last year’s record $2.64 million total. Every cent donated to ACWC helps enrich the lives of the citizens of Williamson County by bringing the arts and people together.

Happy Quilt

Just as a quilt is a pieced together, so are collaborations. The Arts Council worked with the Davis House Advocacy Center and the Cumberland Valley Quilters Association to create the Happy Quilt.

The squares were drawn and decorated by children receiving services at the Davis House, in addition to students who were performing service work with the Davis House. Art is a powerful medium of communication and this quilt represents the happy feelings that children have when they live in a safe and loving household. The Arts Council is very appreciative of the amazing work and time of quilters who made this true piece of art come to life. If it weren’t for their talents and volunteerism, the Happy Quilt wouldn’t have come to life. The quilt was auctioned during the Davis’ House Legacy Ball on March 5.
