A Step For Diversity In The Arts In Chattanooga

Charlie Newton

It’s an effort to support the work of diverse artists in the Chattanooga area.

Five local artists - all of them, African-American - have received a grant from ArtsBuild, the nonprofit for the arts in Chattanooga and Hamilton County.



Tomorrow evening, starting at 5:30 PM, the artists will be celebrated at the first ArtsBuild After Work, a monthly community gathering.

Miriam Manda is with ArtsBuild - and Charlie Newton is one of the local artists who received a grant.
