AAC Foundation aims to limit Coronavirus exposure
GEORGE, UT – Until the current health crisis has passed, the Art Around the Corner (AAC) Foundation is postponing its annual gala, scheduled for April 3rd, and the installation of new sculptures in St. George. This decision is in keeping with the Governor’s recommendation that all events of more than 100 people be suspended for two weeks.
AAC has been in touch with all of the artists who were planning to attend, and greatly appreciates their understanding and willingness to pitch in as needed. Additionally, the Around the Corner Foundation will contact patrons who have already purchased tickets to the gala, and will offer either a credit for the tickets when the gala is rescheduled, or a refund.
In the interim, AAC reminds the St. George community that the outdoor sculpture galleries are an ideal place to find peace in these chaotic times, and also offer an opportunity – via a walking tour of the artwork – to get in some exercise while many gyms are closed. The locations of all sculptures can be found by visiting the Art Around the Corner Foundation’s website, www.artaroundthecorner.org.
“For the past 16 years, the Art Around the Corner Foundation has been honored to work closely with the City of St. George to help create a vibrant arts landscape,” said Marianne Hamilton, Art Around the Corner Foundation Chair. “We are mindful of the need to exercise caution during the COVID-19 outbreak, and to keep our community safe. We look forward to rescheduling our exciting annual arts events after the current crisis has passed, and our residents and visitors are outside enjoying the beauty of St. George once more.”
