You may not have heard much about the goings on at MAAG lately. We’ve been quietly busy – very busy. As our August 31st move date approaches, and we get ready to launch #MAAGPopsUp mode, we’re thrilled to share some incredible news!
We have solid commitments that will ensure our continued success while anticipating the completion of our new space on the 6600 Block of Germantown Ave. Let’s just say, we couldn’t have done this without Mt. Airy USA as our community partner. Stay tuned for details on where MAAG will be popping up this Fall:
1. We will be opening our handcraft gift shop on Germantown Ave. You’ll know where to find us, any day of the week, by following the hashtag #MAAGPopsUp on social media.
2. We have confirmed a location for both Philadelphia Open Studio Tour (POST) AND our Holiday Art Market! Thanks to Lutheran Theological Seminary, we will be hosting a big, beautiful, AND handicapped accessible series of events (with parking) right in Mt. Airy.
3. As artists in residence, we will be moving into Houston and Emlen Schools in October 2016 as we launch the Community of Pride Mural Project.
4. We will be hosting all of our monthly artist group meetings, classes, and figure drawing at confirmed locations starting in Sept. 2016.
5. We are deepening our partnerships with other arts organizations for some outstanding member exhibitions both indoor and outdoor in 2016-7.
So what can you do to help? For starters, you can become a member or rejoin. It’s so easy! You can make a donation to the MAAG in Action Fund. Your money will help us pay for movers, put our things into storage, and position us to be even more visible than ever before. We’re excited to begin a new era, but we can’t do it without you!
Be sure to follow MAAG on social media for details on our classes, workshops, exhibitions, and updates on our move, with the hashtag #MAAGPopsUp!
