15 years of serving the families of our community.... our family tree
As we look over our membership records, we see many who have been members nearly from the beginning in 2002. Through our events, fund raisers and festivals—and those families who have been part of Color My World Arts Academy and Dorothy Deen's Cello Studio whose kids have grown up with us, we have become like a family, sharing news -- happy and sad -- and creating art and music together. Our Arts in Bartlett family have made the saying,"It wouldn't be BARTlett without ART" a reality.
Durig our 15th anniversary year -- 2017 -- we will be creating a graphic of our family tree. As people join or renew a beautiful origami leaf made by artists Jenny Vogt and Marianne Andersen will be added to the tree trunk on display in our gallery with the name of the member.
To become a member, please fill out the 2017 membership form here. Details of all the benefits are on page 2. Please consider an extra donation to the 15th Anniversary Bright Future Fund. You can mail the form in with a check or join online below.
