The Santa Cruz County Bank Arts Collaborative is an outreach effort to promote professional artists and art education by providing exhibiting artists with promotional assistance and by mounting public exhibitions in its banking offices throughout the County.
Already a popular stop on the First Friday Art Tour, Santa Cruz County Bank welcomes the public to stop in at any time to view the art on display in each of its offices. Santa Cruz County Bank received the 2007 ArtWORKS Emerging Business Award granted by the City of Santa Cruz Arts Commission. "The Bank's arts program is just one of the many ways we contribute back to our community," says Mary Anne Carson, the Bank's Director of Marketing.
