(2) Phil in North Carolina: Buying or receiving for free an arts specialty license plate from Arts North Carolina is my kind of event. It has a start time, once we reach 300, but there is no ending. The guest list will grow with time and what’s more, the guests will support arts advocacy for decades to come. Please help us reach our goal of 300 before Christmas. Get yours today at http://www.artsnc.org
or call the office to get an application that wavies the first year’s fee for artists, arts educators, and arts administrators.
