React/Dance at 619/ 2009-2010 NWAA membership and sponsorship information...

A lot of video was shot of last night's performance at 619 N Market Street. While that video is being edited and uploaded this small clip can give you an idea of what took place. New Wilmington Art Association would like to thank Jacelyn Biondo and Kristen Shahverdian of React/Dance. We'd also like to thank Heather Campbell Coyle for participating in Ahlen Moin's performance, My Salon.

bodies/words/sounds was NWAA's 10th exhibition. It was also the last exhibition held under the group's old liability plan. We will be taking the month of June off while we raise funds for our new plan which will ultimately cover us for two public events every month! In addition to holding multiple monthly events, our new deal will enable our members to utilize a vacant building for communal studio space.

The following information breaks down the 2009-2010 operating cost of our emerging organization. We need to reach our goal of 40 dues paying members and/or sponsors to cover our expenses in the coming year:
