Celebrating iHeart Arts Month
In 2015, Greensboro City Council passed a resolution declaring April as iHeart Arts Month. ArtsGreensboro is celebrating with a DIY Public Art Scavenger Hunt that is fun for the whole family. Registration is free with the option of donating to the ArtsFund, a community-wide campaign supporting our local arts organizations and artists.
Be one of the first 75 people to register and make a donation at any level, and we’ll send you an ArtsGreensboro Creativity Happens sticker so you can proudly display your support of the arts.
The event runs from April 16 through April 30. You can share the experience with friends and family or go it alone. You have the entire two weeks to complete the hunt and discover all the unique art of Greensboro. There will be challenges throughout that will earn you points and possibly one of three prizes.
Register to participate in the scavenger hunt at artsgreensboro.org before April 14. On April 16, you will receive an email with instructions to download the scavenger hunt app and a code to begin the adventure. Each location will have a different challenge to complete and gain points. Prizes will be awarded for the most points won, best creative photo or video, and most thoughtful response. The hunt ends at 6:00 pm on April 30, with all winners announced on May 3.
Have fun, be creative, and discover (or rediscover) our vibrant Greensboro. Ready, set, go!

My Art Story

Music for a great space
Music for a Great Space (MGS) originated as an organ series to feature the Fisk Op. 82 organ, which resides at Christ United Methodist Church. MGS founders, Henry and Lucy Ingram, sought advice from colleagues and gathered a group of supporters to launch the concerts. After a few successful seasons, the Ingrams decided to branch out and invite other genres of artists and ensembles to perform in the series. Now offering seven concerts each season, with accompanying educational experiences, MGS presents culturally diverse programs featuring small ensemble and solo concerts. Remaining true to its history, MGS features two talented organists each season.
Finishing up the “Season Anew” 2022-2023 season, MGS will present a free, open-to-the-public event at Center City Park on April 8. In collaboration with Casa Azul, MGS will feature Mexican folklore ensemble Cascade de Flores in an evening of nostalgic songs and traditions of Mexico.

"Support from ArtsGreensboro has come in such a myriad of ways, and we cannot be more grateful for the essential work they do here in Greensboro. In addition to the support they provide with grant funding for arts organizations, they have created a powerful connection within the arts community which allows us to help ourselves and each other, and to strengthen our offerings to our city."
Rebecca Willie, Executive Director of MGS
