Exhibitions & Events
Our artist programs and public engagement series demonstrate the role artists and curators play in our communities by connecting audiences to creative practices, ideas, art forms, and each other. Through exhibitions, performances, Muse Fuse talks, screenings, and publications, NURTUREart provides direct support to artists and curators and aims to inspire the public to think critically about the world around them and connect to their creative and local communities.
