2015 - The Year of the Pine Ridge Center for Artists and Crafters March 23 2015
2015 seems to be getting off to a slow start for the PRCAC. Our Board is scattered across the country and several issues make it difficult to do business on the Reservation, especially from a distance. However, big things are happening under the surface! We should receive a response from the IRS regarding our application for tax-exempt status any day! There are numerous opportunities for sponsoring events and supporting artists in the meantime. Plans are underway to sponsor booths at both the Sturgis Bike Rally 75th Anniversary and the Arts Festival at the Custer Buffalo Roundup 50th Anniversary to showcase Lakota art and artisans at these events. Meetings with all interested parties and photo shoots are planned on the Reservation April 24-25. There are retailers and museum stores to contact...Kickstarter video to make...grants to apply for! So much to do. And the need is urgent. The time is now. Take some time to consider how you might get involved. If you have business, accounting, marketing or fundraising experience, we need you! Or perhaps you know someone who has been looking for a deeper purpose or a faith-based group interested in starting a ministry to a Native community? Please contact us at Sales@PineRidgeArtCenter.com or call 515/231-8192.
