The Door County Community Foundation has awarded the Frances Hardy Center for the Arts a Sustainability Grant from the Ruth & Hartley Barker Memorial Fund and the William C. & Marjorie W. Glenn Endowment Fund. This grant will cover the expenses of upgrading the Hardy Gallery’s technology, specifically a retail point of sale kit. The retail cash register will optimize the time it takes for docents to perform transactions for gallery visitors and will provide confidence for both that the transaction was done correctly and securely.
“The Hardy Gallery’s purpose is to enrich the vibrancy of the Door County community through promoting and fostering local visual arts,” said Kacie Mueller, community relations officer of the Door County Community Foundation. “Helping to fulfill that purpose are the gallery docents, volunteers from all over the peninsula. The Community Foundation is happy to be able to provide the funds to support a technology upgrade which will advance the quality service these volunteers are able to provide.”
