FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
BexArts, Bexley’s Community Arts Council, awarded grant for Inaugural 2018 Season from the Bexley Community Foundation’s Susie and Charlie Rath Creative Arts Fund
Bexley, OH, February 25th, 2018 – BexArts is proud to announce that their Inaugural 2018 Season of arts programming will be funded in part by a generous grant from the Bexley Community Foundation’s Susie and Charlie Rath Creative Fund for the Arts. BexArts is Bexley’s non-profit community arts council and was formed in 2016 by residents interested in enhancing Bexley’s already lively arts scene with diverse and innovative programming. The mission of BexArts is to:
“enhance the vitality of Bexley by inspiring, enlivening and engaging the Bexley community, its residents and visitors through meaningful experiences in the arts.”
The grant from the Susie and Charlie Rath Creative Fund for the Arts will help launch BexArts into their inaugural season which will include public murals featuring Bexley artists, a community theater production entitled “Check, Please” by Jonathan Rand with musical interludes, a visual art show at the Bexley Public Library, and on-going participation in the national “Kindness Rocks” initiative.
Susie and Charlie Rath established the Creative Fund for the Arts through the Bexley Community Foundation in memory Susie’s father Leland S. McClelland. McClelland was a highly regarded local artist and longtime Bexley resident. The fund was established to promote the creative arts, including the visual and performing arts, vocal and instrumental music, writing and communication, design, and digital and other media, in the Bexley Community. More information about the Creative Fund for the Arts and the Bexley Community Foundation can be found at bexleycommunityfoundation.org.
