Artmaking encourages critical thinking, sharing and respecting different perspectives, and creative collaboration with others.
Art fosters self-awareness in the context of healthy relationships with family, co-workers, and throughout our community.
Thank you for your generosity and your willingness to extend your influence to create the space and resources to make such experiences possible. We couldn’t do what we do without you!
Our Community Partners are business leaders who understand that the practice−and the appreciation−of art are hallmarks of a whole person and a healthy society.
Their annual gifts sustain our art and cultural programs for adults and children of all backgrounds and abilities, building a stronger, more resourceful, community.
