fine ART COMMISSIONS
Ever since Apollo's inception back in 2008, we have been interested in the multimedia aspect of performance. We believe that bringing together several art forms enhances the audience's overall experience and provides augmented context and understanding to our performances. -All while supporting artists in other disciplines.
Apollo has sponsored dozens of art works which include canvas paintings, digital artworks, dance choreography, and fibre art, among others.
These artworks are utilized in multiple forms, they begin in live performance and transform into print form, digital form and most importantly they become part of our educational programs.
Please consider a gift to invest in this unique opportunity.
