WE CAN DO THIS
Early on the morning of June 7th, 2016, a fire in the VSC Church Studios destroyed the studios of 12 VSC resident and staff artists and writers, and nearly destroyed one of Johnson, Vermont's historic main street landmarks.
Rising to the challenge of re-building the Church Studios will pay tribute to the people and history of Johnson, Vermont, and to the Vermont Studio Center’s enduring support of artists.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Vermont Studio Center has been offered a magnificent matching challenge grant of up to $270K to raise the $540K needed to re-build the Church Studios. This challenge is intended to spark a collective effort within the entire VSC community, and YOU are the key to reaching our goal!
All gifts will be matched 1:1 by the Church Studios Challenge. YOU—VSC alumni, Visiting Artists and Writers, staff, trustees, friends, donors, foundation partners, and Johnson and Vermont neighbors—can make this happen. Please join the challenge and give generously. This is our chance to see our gifts DOUBLED and the VSC Church Studios rebuilt in 2017.
In order to begin construction in Spring 2017, we need to reach our goal for this matching gifts challenge in March 2017.
