We acknowledge the obstacles that independent artists must overcome to promote their creativity, and we wish to help remove as many as we can. As a component of our community impact strategy, we launched the Get Artistic initiative in June 2018 in the hopes of helping sustain the vibrance of Athens, Georgia’s creative community.
While Get Comfortable is focused on helping people survive, Get Artistic is committed to helping others thrive. We believe these outcomes—surviving and thriving—are two halves to a whole, both necessary to foster a healthy community.
To celebrate the year-round launch of Automatic, we’re featuring artist Cristina Carolina Echezarreta in a one-week-only pop-up art installation, on view in Creature Comforts’ drive-through 2:00-8:00 PM daily from May 5 to 10, 2020.
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, we’re excited to share a handful of ways we’re incorporating sustainability into our office culture, brewing facilities, and local community.
The Athens Arts Alliance has developed a survey to gauge the economic impact of COVID-19 on artists in Athens-Clarke County. Responses are being collected through April 22, 2020.
