Congratulations to Crossroads Carnegie Arts Center in Baker City, OR, Star Award 2019


American Craft Week celebrates 2019 Star Award winner for Exceptional Nonprofit Support, Crossroads Carnegie Arts Center in Baker City, OR. Crossroads is without a doubt the backbone of the area's arts scene. They are strong supporters of the annual studio tour, offer workshops, exhibitions and their outreach program is exceptional. During 2019 ACW one of their events was to bring in K-2 students on a field trip from Keating Elementary, a remote, rural traditional one-room schoolhouse. A children's author read a book to them and then they all illustrated scenes from the book. What a wonderful day for those children! Check out their website and Facebook page for more information. If you're in the Eastern part of Oregon, don't miss Crossroads!
