Artist and scenic designer Craig Spain was a native Nashvillian whose drive and creative passion touched the hundreds of thousands who witnessed his work. Craig’s skill and vision came to fruition as he served as set designer for the most reputable performing arts organizations, including professional theater, ballet, opera, and community theater. This Fund was established to keep Craig’s enthusiasm alive and is intended to assist designers and production teams mounting new productions to take that extra step to convert their dreams into images that will touch, move and inspire.
