The Community Arts Endowment Fund at the Shasta Regional Community Foundation was established through the Articipate Campaign that began in 2010. The fund is dedicated to supporting the arts in our region today and forever. Through the power of endowment a gift made to the fund today will continue to grow allowing grants to be given from the fund to artists and art projects in perpetuity. The fund will provide grants to support visual public art, such as murals, sculpture and other graphic art forms displayed or presented in public areas in Shasta and Siskiyou Counties.
“We are so honored to partner with the Yreka Chamber of Commerce by providing a $1000 title sponsorship through our Community Arts Endowment”, said Kerry Caranci, CEO of the Shasta Regional Community Foundation.
The sponsorship will allow Yreka Chamber of Commerce to more actively promote and market the Yreka Art Walk throughout the region. “We are thrilled at the opportunity to bring more visitors to Yreka to experience the talent and passion of our artist community,” said Kory Hayden, Executive Director of the Yreka Chamber of Commerce.
This event series is very special in the Yreka Community. In partnership with talented artists, local shops and Yreka’s Historical Downtown Galleries (Liberty Arts, Bella Art Works and Shoppe Serendipity), our community will infuse Miner and Broadway with gallery inspired art, live music and appetizers on May 16th, June 27th, August 1st, September 19th and October 24th.
