Blick Art Materials and Utrecht Art Supplies "Advance the Arts"!
During the month of October, Blick Art Materials and Utrecht Art Supplies supported the Arts Action Fund’s membership drive by enabling easy, free enrollment at its 72 store locations and online at DickBlick.com and Utrecht.com. The Arts Action Fund is a non-profit organization that is leading the movement to ensure healthy arts funding and arts education in America. Customers who signed up received a free member-only decal plus other benefits, including the ability to vote on legislative policy platforms, access to breaking news and alerts via the E-Advocacy center, quarterly updates through Arts Action eNews, and exclusive access to the members-only Arts Action Fund PAC (Political Action Committee). As a result of the membership drive, Blick and Utrecht generated more than 10,000 new members for the Arts Action Fund.
