Tall Grass Arts Association
Annual Fund Drive
Dear Supporter of the arts,
Thanks to you, we have made it through Covid but it looks like there will still be rocky days ahead!
The past 18 months have been tough on all of us, especially arts organizations. Some have closed permanently but many are cautiously re-opening. Tall Grass is open and has even started hosting receptions for its gallery exhibitions.
Even without receptions, Tall Grass presented a full year of exhibits which included an absolutely beautiful pastel show and an edgy mixed media exhibit titled “Other Than”. We were also excited to welcome back artists to the 65th annual Park Forest Art Fair. These Tall Grass activities would not have been possible without your support.
We remain hopefully optimistic as we look forward to the events planned for 2022. The Gallery exhibit schedule will include a Morton Arboretum nature exhibit, a “Black or White” call for artists show and an invitational featuring watercolor artists. Preparations have begun for an in-person Beaux Arts Ball with an online silent auction in March. The school has expanded its offerings with several new adult classes.
With this letter, Tall Grass kicks off its 2021 Annual Fund Drive which includes a matching grant from the Village of Park Forest. That means whatever you donate will be matched, dollar for dollar. We ask for your generous support to continue the Tall Grass mission to promote public education and appreciation of the arts.
When we say “We would not have made it without you!”, we mean it from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you, in advance, for your continued support and the role you play in Tall Grass Arts Association.
