Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Through your generosity, Guilford Art Center received critical financial support during the Great Give. We so appreciate your support and look forward to creating more meaningful art experiences for our community. The Great Give window for matches, prizes and incentives has closed, but if you missed your opportunity to contribute, you can still do so HERE until 11:59 pm on Sunday, May 8. And we hope you had as much fun reading our emails as we did creating them 🙂
