S23 To-Go in the News

On Saturday, April 22, we rolled to RVA Earth Day in our brand new S23 To-Go mobile art studio. It was a race to the finish to get the truck ready for its first engagement and everything ran smoothly thanks to project manager Jake Urbanski and the whole Studio Two Three community of staff and interns. 

Also thanks to the press for covering our S23 To-Go launch. Read the stories here:

Congratulations to Studio Two Three founder and executive director Ashley Hawkins on being selected one of Richmond's 2017 Women in the Arts by Style Weekly! She was honored on March 15 at a reception and awards ceremony at Dogtown Dance Theater.  "I'm so delighted to be chosen along with the other accomplished and creative women this year," says Ashley.  "It was fun to spend an inspiring evening with other Richmonders who are enthusiastic about the arts in our city."
