JXTA is alive with joy and energy as 2018 draws to a close. This year, our paid youth apprentices trained alongside professional artists to hone creative talents and work on real client projects. We hosted activists, international artists, and other creatives in our gallery space and JXTA Labs. And we launched a $14 million capital campaign for a new building. While we raise this money, a new skate-able art plaza will become a hub of activity for North Minneapolis in the summer of 2019.
Truth be told, it’s always a joyful time at JXTA. We’re creating art and we’re creating real jobs. Ultimately, we’re creating a more vibrant, equitable, socially connected, and economically sustainable world.
Wishing you much joy this season, and throughout the year,
DeAnna Cummings, Chief Executive Officer Roger Cummings, Chief Cultural Producer
P.S. We raised $13,295 on Give to the Max Day to paint a new mural and we’re raising another $10,000 to complete it. If you can contribute to that effort, or make a general year-end contribution to JXTA, we would be very grateful.
