Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation is dedicating $25,000 in Signature Grants to salute and support the creative spirit of New Brunswick visual arts organizations dealing with the challenges of the 2020 pandemic.  Social distancing necessitated the closure of traditional venues for exhibition, art education and celebration; yet art is bubbling through, thanks to the hard work and innovation of many New Brunswick art centres. SHMF 2020 Signature Technology Grants have been offered to the following organizations who have exhibited leadership in developing electronic outreach to enrich the arts community.
