Ribbon Cutting for Follow Your Art Community Studios
Join the Melrose Chamber of Commerce for a ribbon cutting to celebrate the new Follow Your Art Community Studios in Melrose. Meet the Executive Director, Kris Rodolico, and FYACS board members, tour the "big yellow house" and learn about the many programs FYACS has for all ages.
Follow Your Art, LLC, a small community art studio, brought creative art experiences to the greater Melrose community for over 10 years, both through its home studio on Main Street and through community outreach beyond the studio walls. Owned and operated by Kris Rodolico, it ran successfully with a small but dedicated team of artists and community members.
Kris’ vision was for FYA to be a studio space that celebrates creativity and community. Over the years, as the studio mission grew and adapted to the interests and needs of the community, it felt more like a nonprofit community endeavor than a personal business. The time came to bring this vision to fruition. Work began to craft a mission, find a new space and even more community input. Read more here.
