FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Burlington, VT: Burlington City Arts (BCA) and the South End Arts + Business Association (SEABA) are pleased to announce the group exhibition Made. This exhibition takes place at The SEABA Center on Pine Street in Burlington and runs from Friday, November 20th to Thursday, December 31st. There will be a reception held on Friday, December 4th from 5-8pm as part of First Friday. 

Made was conceived in response to planBTV South End, a year-long, arts-focused community engagement process. The resulting plan is both a repository of citizen’s ideas, aspirations and concerns about the future of Burlington’s South End, as well as a roadmap of how we might get there. A central tenet of planBTV South End is the community’s desire to protect and expand the unique blend of arts, industry and enterprise as a foundation for moving forward in this resilient economic hub. Featuring the work of 21 South End-based artists and businesses that highlight and help define what is created in the Enterprise Zone, MADE attempts to capture the variety and scope of talent that is ever-present yet sometimes hidden from view in this vibrant creative community.

Alex Costantino, Eric Eickmann, Jane Frank, Catherine Hall, Ron Hernandez, Athena Kafantaris, Elliott Katz, Noah Lagle, Greg Mamczak, Rachel Morton, Alyssa Oxley, Kristin Richland, Toni-Lee Sangastiano, Mark Eliot Schwabe, and Chris Thompson

Presented by Burlington City Arts in partnership with SEABA and curated by Wylie Garcia, Mark Waskow, and DJ Hellerman. More information regarding planBTV South End can be found at https://www.burlingtonvt.gov/planBTV/SE.

PlanBTV South End is funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts with additional support from the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, AARP, the Environmental Protection Agency, the State of Vermont Department of Housing and Community Development, Dealer.com and Burton.
