Center for Craft in Asheville awarded $975,000
The Center for Craft was awarded $975,000 by the Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority (TDA). Here are the details about the grant:
Center for Craft, Creativity & Design – National Craft Innovation Hub
The National Craft Innovation Hub is an expansion of the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design’s historic 1912 structure, located at 67 Broadway Street. The new space will create an additional 7,000 square feet that will expand the first-floor gallery as well as add an auxiliary gallery, a lecture space, classrooms and workshops, a co-working space and lounge area. Also included is a new artist-designed parklet at the entry. This project will enhance Asheville’s downtown by developing a cultural gateway, connecting cultural assets along the Broadway-Pack Square-Biltmore corridor.
Tourism Product Development Fund Grant Funding: $975.000
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
