Fran Smyth is the Manager of Arts Services at the Arts and Business Council. She is an incredible woman, dedicated to creating and nurturing partnerships between business and the arts. Fran has come up with a project that needs your attention and votes. Here's what she has to say about it:

"For the second year, American Express has created a members' project contest. Worthwhile endeavors can be entered and the public votes on their merit. There are 5 categories of projects, but my heart belongs to the Arts and Culture area.

I've designed a project that I think will help artists and arts groups wherever they are - it's called Art Support Hot Line and it would provides answers or suggestions to artists. There would be a place for information about grants, fiscal conduits, volunteer help, educational resources...whatever was needed. I envision it being staffed by people who both know a lot about the arts and, eve more important, know how to research things.

Projects need votes to come to the attention of the judges. So won't you please take a look at my project and, if you like what you see, vote for it? Here's the link:"
