ArtsGo began in 2006 as an idea to promote Hendricks County Artists. Conceived by the board of the Hendricks County Arts Council, ArtsGo was a daring one-day event that originally sold maps to the public. The maps laid out a tour of local artists’ studios and demonstrations. It also had directions to galleries and makeshift showings of others’ work.
From the beginning it was a hit. The fourth annual ArtsGo! is this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It has grown into a wonderful event and you all should come and enjoy it.
I feel a personal connection to ArtsGo because I was a board member at the time and because I came up with its first logo.
I can’t recall if I came up with the name or if it was suggested to me, but the logo was something I worked on immediately to give some glitter to the press release. My reasoning was an event focused on artists should have some visual pizazz. Apparently, I was right, because the organizers really liked the logo and still use it on their posters.
That gives me a great feeling of pride. I have always been creative, but I’ve never been seen as a graphic artist. This is my one claim to fame.
So, as you tool around the county, admiring various works of art, think of me whenever you run into this logo.
