So its been a crazy couple of years here at iSmudge, but we have a
super cool-a-licious plan for the future! A few weeks ago I launched
City Art Project, Inc. and we are in the process of filing for our
501(c)3 status. We are developing a complete system for the incubation
and development of emerging artists, as well as a program of education
for rural and inner city children who don't have access to arts
programming in the public school systems. Plus all sorts of other cool
stuff, but I won't bore with all of it right now...
So, what does that mean for all of you wonderful iSmudge users? Not a
whole lot will change right away. In time though, this will become
part of CityArtProject.org, powered by the iSmudge engine. You won't
have to do anything different, you'll just see a new name around here
a lot! Also, it means that unfortunately, very soon, we will see the
END of new FREE memberships. I am sorry, but we simply can't afford to
keep this up with so many free memberships. But wait, don't panic! If
you are already a member you will still be a member, we aren't kicking
anybody out. You will all be grandfathered into the new system. So
don't worry, you are still a part of the family. And if you have been
waiting to join... you better hurry up!
Additionally, we have been developing a new weekly web show called the
Artists Reality, and soon we will be featuring City Art (iSmudge)
members on the show, so you will want to tune in each week to see who
we feature, and if you have suggestions for the show, please let us
know! You can see current episodes now at www.ArtistsReality.com.
Okay... that's all for now. Stay tuned and thanks for your continued
09-2016 contest winners...
