The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County has launched its 2017 Annual Campaign and named Anna Marie Smith and Joe Logan as co-chairs.

The Arts Council held its kickoff at The Barn at Reynolda Village, the events center owned by Wake Forest University.

The kickoff featured poetry readings and performances by recent Duke Energy Regional Artist Project Grant recipients Jacinta V. White, Ezra Noble, and Aaron Bachelder.

“Individual artists are the heart and soul of our creative community in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County,” said Catherine Heitz-New, chief advancement officer and deputy director of The Arts Council.

She said the council celebrated them at the Jan. 30 kickoff and applauded the generous residents of “our city and county who step forward each year and contribute financial sup-port, time and energy to make Arts Council campaigns successful.”

“The Arts Council is committed to making Winston-Salem and Forsyth County a place where creative individuals such as these talented artists can thrive.  This is a chance to celebrate them and show them they are appreciated,” said Jim Sparrow, president and CEO of The Arts Council.

The Barn at Reynolda Village is located in Reynolda Village off Reynolda Road in Winston-Salem.

It is marked by the landmark silo that was a part of the Reynolds family’s dairy operation.
