    Arts and Drafts is a little less than 24 hours away! However, we do have one, last minute change in programming. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Anne Mulgrave will no longer be able to present at the roundtable. But not to worry; Germaine Williams from The Pittsburgh Foundation graciously stepped up to the plate! Germaine is currently the Arts and Education Director at the Pittsburgh Foundation. Previously he served as the Creative Director for the Creativity Project, an initiative to improve the climate for artists in Pittsburgh. We are very excited to have Germaine fill in last minute and cannot wait to hear what he has in store!
