The Mission

We acknowledge the obstacles to becoming a self-supporting artist in today’s market, and we therefore wish to leverage our business to remove some of these barriers. In concert with our commitment to our community and to helping others pursue their passion, we launched the Get Artistic program in June 2018 to support the local arts community.

Specifically, this program aims to serve artists by offering the following avenues of support:

  1. Leveraging our Get Artistic Lead staff member to curate and coordinate on-site exhibitions, performances, and other arts enrichment for the community
  2. Acting as patron and grant maker to support nonprofit and government arts programming as well as individual artists’ professional development
  3. Sponsoring and advocating for events and programs in the community that actively seek to remove barriers for artists.

Finally, we seek to continue developing relationships with in-market arts organizations and venues to affirm that we are a company who ‘walks our talk’—committed to help others pursue their passion.

The Method

Get Artistic funding will be generated through specific beer brands, merchandise, events, as well as a percentage of our onsite exhibition sales. Each year, prior to the Get Artistic season of emphasis and product release, we will publish a strategic grant proposal to create opportunities for local artists to both continue their work and sustain their livelihood.
