The Wayne County Arts Alliance is thrilled to announce our plan to purchase the building at 959 Main Street, Honesdale for a headquarters and new home for the WCAA.
The Wayne County Community Foundation board of directors approved a $75,000 matching grant for the Wayne County Arts Alliance to be allocated for the purchase of a new headquarters building at 959 Main Street in Honesdale. The Arts Alliance will use their new building as an art gallery and artists’ space. The grant is contingent on the Wayne County Arts Alliance raising a total of $75,000 in community support by mid February, 2023.
“This is really a step in the right direction to help our local artists make their works more visible and provide a community hub for creative minds to meet, share their work, and flourish” says Ron Rowe, the Community Foundation’s Board Chair. It is the view of the Community Foundation that this space will be a welcomed asset for the community and support the continued revitalization of downtown Honesdale.
“The WCAA is thrilled with this Community Foundation grant to purchase this building, which will grow our organization by leaps and bounds as we step into our 20th year!” says Marguerite Fuller, the WCAA Board President. “A permanent home means many things for our thriving network of artists and volunteers and we have come this far because of a wonderfully supportive community. It’s time to roll up our sleeves as we continue our fundraising efforts, and make this dream a reality. Thank you to the Wayne County Community Foundation, to our members and Board, and to everyone who is able to donate their money or time. We appreciate you!”
We are on our way to our fundraising goal thanks to generous pledges and donations from members and friends, and are now reaching out to the public for their support.
