EEAC logo    (RIVERHEAD, NY, March 24, 2014) –– East End Arts is pleased to announce the participants in their new professional development program for artists of all disciplines, titled JumpstART which offers the opportunity for artists’ work to get high visibility through public presentation. In addition to a number of workshops, all participating artists have the unprecedented opportunity to design and implement a public art project in downtown Riverhead during the Summer of 2014. East End Arts’ Executive Director Patricia Snyder is thrilled with the enthusiasm of the participants: “All artists were ready to hit the ground running at orientation in early March. They quickly got to know each other and have been sharing ideas for their public art projects ever since. Several of the artists have already decided that they will be collaborating on their public art works, combining various arts disciplines. The possibilities are endless. We are thrilled to see the many projects that will glitter downtown Riverhead this August.” Of the 36 applications received, only 16 artists were chosen to participate. Program participants include:
