The function of Creative Placemaking is to bring economic and cultural development to a community through the arts. This work has been funded by a grant from the Americans for the Arts And the National Association of Counties through a two year grant including training and guidance while developing outcomes. The Cohort includes members from different sectors of the community as well as representation from key Arts Organizations in the county.
62 works were chosen to be featured in the exhibit from 168 entries.
