2018 ANNUAL FUND CAMPAIGN

YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!


From Our Board Of Directors YOU are making a difference! Thank you. You make Studios on the Park your art studio and it is making a real difference in people's lives. As you will discover in this booklet, your gifts to Studios are truly transformational for not hundreds, but for thousands, of children and adults in the Paso Robles community. Your support makes Studios a centerpiece of art and art education in our city. When our Kids Art Smart participants (ALL elementary school age children in northern San Luis Obispo County) return with their families to see their creations and lead them on tours, their ownership of Studios is evident. Our friends and neighbors claim Studios as their art studio when they bring visitors and loved ones in for exhibitions and special events like Art After Dark Paso or take a photo in front of Enjoy PASO, our latest mural project. You make all of this possible by giving generously to the Annual Fund which underwrites all of our important work. We could not do it without you. So, read on as we share the most recent Studios' news, the number of lives changed and the tangible results that we, together, are making in our community. The 2018 Studios on the Park Annual Fund Campaign is officially underway! We know we can count on you to help us continue making a real difference. Thank you for making the Studios dream a reality.

MURAL ARTS THANKS TO YOUR PARTNERSHIP, STUDIOS ON THE PARK HAS COME TO PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE EVOLUTION OF PASO ROBLES’ CIVIC CULTURE The latest and greatest expression of our mission to advance the arts in our community is Enjoy PASO, our first ever painted outdoor artwork at 1215 Spring Street. With support from building owner George Shoemaker and Firestone Walker Brewing Company, we commissioned internationally recognized mural artist Pat Milbery and his So-Gnar Inc. team to create a visual representation of our identity. Collaborating with dozens of local youth and volunteers, they braved rain and freezing temperatures to complete a 99' long work of art that revitalizes and beautifies, inspires dialogue, and unites the Paso Robles community around a common sense of place. The poet Pablo Neruda called murals “the people’s blackboard” and Enjoy PASO is exactly that. Help us paint more murals and secure Paso Robles' place as the center of creative culture and economy on the Central Coast.

"I found this working studio and collective art gallery very refreshing and a real breath of fresh air. Paso Robles residents and city leaders should be very proud…Great variety, multiple artists on hand, skill levels quite good, prices running a very broad range, etc., make it a great stop…It enriches the city and deserves to flourish." — Tim, Santa Fe, NM (from TripAdvisor)
