Owner Becky Causey accepted the award
at Small Business Awards Luncheon
"Greensboro, N.C., May 5, 2016 — Today, ArtsGreensboro—in partnership with the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, the Greensboro Merchants Association, and the North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center at UNCG—presented the 2016 Arts in Business Award to The View on Elm during the Chamber’s Small Business Awards Luncheon.
The Arts in Business Award recognizes a Greensboro small business for its leadership and commitment to the arts and its impact on the arts over the past year, as measured by activities, projects, or events in support of any aspect of the arts.
With its exciting series of gallery events and art shows, The View on Elm has become a fixture of the downtown arts scene since relocating from State Street to South Elm in 2004. Sophisticated and worldly, The View is a downtown environment where people see cutting-edge eyewear together with amazing art and exquisite handmade jewelry.
The View is the brainchild—and the passion—of owner Becky Causey. With The View, Causey has created a space that showcases the arts in Greensboro, a focal point for arts and community events that are diverse and welcoming. The paintings on the walls, the artists in the room, and the people who attend events become “social art.” New artists, experienced artists—all find a welcoming place at The View in which to introduce their art to a wide range of arts lovers and potential buyers.
With an annual budget of approximately $4 million, ArtsGreensboro is a catalyst for innovation to build recognition and support for the arts. Through its ArtsFund-supported grant programs, the 17DAYS Arts & Culture Festival, the Levitt AMP Greensboro Music Series, I HEART ARTS Month, and other opportunities including the National Folk Festival, ArtsGreensboro is driving the health and vitality of our community by supporting arts education, celebrating the diversity of Greensboro, and driving economic impact through excellence in arts programming. artsgreensboro.org"
