While aspiring artists and creative types will find sugary treats, courtesy of Essence Bakery and Cartel Coffee Lab, at SMoCA Lounge's latest Good ‘N Plenty artist grant event, also up for grabs will be some pretty sweet prize money.
Here's how it works: Up until about a week before the grant event, locals can submit proposals for artsy projects to SMoCA. Six of those projects are chosen to compete for said grant, which is community-funded by tickets sold to the grant event and to events like this summer's Grocery Bagging for Art. Scottsdale Public Art gets in on the action by matching funds. After their presentations, the audience votes on what project they think is best, and the winner is selected.
So listen up (and snag a sweet snack or two) when the Good ‘N Plenty go-getters share their ideas starting at on Friday, September 6, at 7374 East Second Street. Tickets are $10 and available at www.scottsdaleperformingarts.org/smoca-events.php or by calling 480-499-8587. For details, visit www.smocalounge.org.
