Artists Among Us
Paralleling the ArtsQuest story that links the rich history of Bethlehem Steel to the present day with it’s dynamic arts campus, the new ‘Artists Among Us’ program aspires to reveal the full scope of artistry in Bucks, Lehigh, & Northampton Counties – threading the past with the present, to inspire the future. The new program will honor the rich past of artistry in Bucks County/Lehigh Valley, bringing together a host of present-day visual artists, photographers, craftsmen, sculptors, actors, comedians, authors, illustrators, fashion designers, theater producers and more, to encourage, excite and support the aspirations of art-makers, young and old.
