Help send Kreneshia to Italy!

Since graduating from the Center for Creative Arts school, Chattanooga native, Kreneshia Whiteside, has become an advocate for the arts and uses her skills to help sustain culture in the community. She’s been building her curatorial legacy in the Tennessee region for the past three years- two of which have been as the Chief Curator at the Association for Visual Arts, a non-profit art gallery. 

Kreneshia has recently been accepted into the 2019 School for Curatorial Studies Venice, a three-month intensive course held in Italy beginning in June, led by international art professionals and scholars from respected institutions, such as the Guggenheim and the London ICA. Kreneshia has the opportunity to not only work with these renown experts, but also the prominent artists of the International Art Biennale.

Please help her raise funds to take part in this phenomenal opportunity.

Funding will go towards tuition, boarding, and traveling expenses.

"Chattanooga needs arts professionals like Kreneshia. This opportunity to study abroad will not only benefit Kreneshia, but the knowledge she will bring back to Chattanooga will strengthen our arts community."
