Twelve writers and 12 artists will be selected for the first annual calendar. The 2020 calendar will be available for purchase throughout the County this fall, and all proceeds will benefit the Arts Alliance, a 501(c)3 that has been promoting arts and culture in Clackamas County for the last 25 years.
