TwispWorks officials give visitors from the Washington State Arts Commission a tour of the campus on Wednesday (June 12).
From left are Sandy Moody, president of the Twisp Chamber of Commerce; Annette Roth, the Arts Commission’s creative districts program manager; Arts Commission consultant Elliat Graney-Saucke; TwispWorks Executive Director Don Linnertz; and Tori Karpenko, TwispWorks director of campus operations.
Roth and Graney-Saucke were in Twisp last week promoting the Arts Commission’s creative district program to town officials and members of the arts community. The creative district designation is new in this state; so far, only the city of Edmonds has completed the application process to earn what Roth called a “stamp of approval” that can support arts programs in a community through grants and free highway signs.
The town will submit the application for the designation, with assistance from the Methow Arts Alliance, according to Methow Arts Executive Director Amanda Jackson Mott.
