About Step Up:

Every year Real Art Ways sponsors an open call for emerging artists living in New England, New York, and New Jersey. These 68 artists were selected from 170 entries. Additionally, six artists were selected to receive solo exhibitions, which will take place in 2011.

Step Up 2010 is made possible with the generous support of our members, the National Endowment for the Arts, Sandy and Howard Fromson, and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
