The first recipient of a Rising Stars grant of $5000 was Farmstead Arts in Basking Ridge. Located on the grounds of the historic Kennedy Martin Stelle Farmstead, Farmstead Arts is a center for fine, performing and practical arts offering year-round programming of concerts, theater performances, art exhibitions and special events like barn dances and holiday
boutiques. Artists in residence offer all varieties of art classes and workshops.
Farmstead Arts was nominated by member Ginger Brennan. Thank you, Ginger, for bringing this worthy small nonprofit to our attention. We look forward to the selection of our second Rising Stars grant recipient in early 2021.
