Good ‘N Plenty Artist Awards: a community-funded grant for local creatives. Here’s how it works, for the price of a ten dollar event ticket, community members get to stuff their faces with sweet treats from a local bakery, listen/watch six creatives present zesty projects, and then vote for their favorite project of the evening! The project with the most votes is awarded the Good ‘N Plenty Artist Award, which is comprised of that evening’s ticket sales, proceeds from Arm Wrestling for Art, and a matching grant from from Scottsdale Public Art’s Spark Grant. Awards range from $1,000 to $1,600. Here’s what it feels like to be Good ‘N Plenty. Please check back in June, 2015 for details and application.
