Twelve Metro Area Non-Profits Join Together to Offer the Metro Arts Pass
By Cheril Lee
Omaha, NE – A dozen non-profit organizations have collaborated to offer metro residents the new Metro Arts Pass.
The program kicked off last month and will continue through August of 2011. Julie Huffman is the Marketing Manager for Fontenelle Forest. She says the program encourages residents to sample all of the metro area's cultural organizations. Huffman says it's really simple to take part in the program, "When you are a member or a subscriber of one of the 12 organizations, you automatically have access to the incentive so you don't need to have an extra card or to carry anything extra special for this."
The featured organization in November is the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. They are offering a free membership to new members. In December, the Durham Museum is offering 10% off all the purchases in their gift shop. For a complete listing of organizations that are participating as well as the discounts or incentives they are offering, the web site is metroartspass.com.
