Kudzu Art Zone is an organization of volunteer artists whose focus is the support and advancement of local art and artists throughout the community. Kudzu Art Zone’s name derives from the founding artists’ vision of forming an art organization with resilience and tenacity.
Led by a five-member appointed Board of Trustees, Kudzu enjoys non-profit incorporate status, enabling grant and civic financial support. As well as the capacity to receive tax-deductible donations.
The true strength of Kudzu lies in its committee structure. While overseen by the Board of Trustees, each committee provides structure for member input and action. Committee activities are the driving force behind Kudzu’s success. It is essential that every member take an active role as a volunteer in his or her area of strength and interest. Varied committee efforts in turn provide opportunities to the membership as a whole through programming, exhibition opportunities, social networking, and community outreach.
Through partnership with the City of Norcross, Kudzu Art Zone has secured a brick and mortar site for continued growth. As members continue to join and new initiatives are begun, volunteer members remain the source of Kudzu’s strength. Members should expect to have an active ongoing role in Kudzu’s success.
Kudzu Art Zone holds 7 member-only exhibitions annually which allows artists to share their work. In 2013, Kudzu Art Zone held its first annual Juried Exhibition, open to all artists in the state of Georgia. Kudzu Art Zone exhibitions and receptions are always free and accessible to the general public.
