Art is a transformative power
This has been an eventful year at Roxbury Arts Group! We gathered together to experience exciting and poignant performances in dance, theater and music. We have painted, drawn, stitched, marbled and woven together. We have been awed by artists’ works in our galleries. It has been a joy to more fully return to performances in the Vega Mountain performance hall with its new sound system. We have had inspiring exhibits and workshops in our Headwaters space in Stamford. And after a hiatus of two years, and a newly painted exterior, we again experienced the magic of concerts in the Old School Baptist Church.
All art is a leap of faith angled towards hope
Together we inspire the next generation! We work with schools in four counties to create short residencies and workshops throughout the school year. We bring performers to our local schools for engagement events. We further support Creative Learning through our Delaware County Arts Grants, making these opportunities in schools and communities a funding priority. And anyone 15 & under is welcomed to attend any of our performances, at any of our venues, as our guest, creating access to some of the most inventive and high-quality arts programming in our region.
Art is the gift of knowing and being known
We help area artists bring special projects and events to life. In 2022, we were able to distribute over $50,000 to support arts programming and arts projects in Delaware County. This year we were also proud to launch the DelCo Artist Micro Loan Program. These efforts help up achieve our strategic goal of making Delaware County a place where artists can live, work, and thrive.
With a small staff, dedicated volunteers, and your help, we do a lot! Your appreciation and celebration of the arts make all of this possible. Your involvement and generous donations of time, energy and funds make the difference.
