Arkansas Artist Work Enrichment website design. Simplemachine created the website design for AAWE during the end of the Summer in 2017.
Simplemachine is in collaboration with local Arkansas artists and Ashby Street Outdoor to create the Arkansas Artist Work Enrichment program. AAWE is dedicated to the promotion of the arts in Arkansas. By hosting local artists on large scale billboards throughout the region, AAWE gives the community an open view of the talented artists in our communities and also provides an enrichment of environment through contemporary art. The program is meant to cultivate an environment where unique talent may emerge & thrive, nurturing a culture where LOCAL artists & organizations flourish.
“Over the course of time, an artwork kind of grows on you. Maybe you hate it the first day you see it, maybe the last day you love it, or maybe the opposite, maybe it changes every day for you, so you get to spend time with a work of art that a lot of times even if you go into a gallery, you don’t get a chance to spend that long with a work of art, but when it’s on your daily commute, you really get to spend time with it.” – AAWE Curator Danny Baskin
