Were it not for our LOCAL AIR TALENT, the show would hardly go on. Here at AIR Artist in Residence, collaborating with the local artists within our community is an essential part of our program.  If we bring in an artist who is not very well known, it's our local arts community that lends their names and reputations to our events to help bring an audience to our new or mid-level artist.  That is why we do our best to create outlets such as "AIR POPPED" Pop-UP artist events for our local artists to prosper and expand their market within the community to generate more income and exposure, in addition to their participation in our quarterly events.
