John Boyer, professor at Virginia Tech and creator of The Plaid Avenger, shares a plaid handshake at the YMCA at Virginia Tech's Art To Go with Anne Clelland, founder and CEO of Handshake Media, parent company of Handshake 2.0.
Art To Go was part of a series of events to raise funds for the Pottery Studio at the Y. Handshake 2.0 has been delighted to be part of this effort. According to the YMCA's executive director, Gail Billingsley, ""Our area is without a public access arts space. We are building our own Pottery Studio to be able to offer classes year-round that will generate revenue to fund our community outreach programs." That sounds like regional economic development to us.
