Transforming individuals and communities through the visual arts
For nearly 30 years, VisArts has created opportunities for children, teens, and adults to express their creativity, connect with others, and deepen their experience with the visual arts. Each year, our programs reach 34,000 individuals who find inspiration, enrichment, and community at VisArts.
We believe that the visual arts have the power to change lives and communities. Our gallery exhibitions, educational programs, artist opportunities, and outreach services flame the creative spark that burns within each of us. Our community partnerships create major public art projects, arts festivals, and celebrations to vitalize our region. And our philanthropic programs bring creative experiences to seniors, veterans, low income families, and individuals with disabilities.
But we can't do this work alone. As a nonprofit arts center, we rely on your support to accomplish our mission of transforming individuals and communities through the visual arts. This year, your support will help us to present 33 exhibitions and 50 gallery programs (free of charge), offer 850 educational classes, and "give back" nearly $30,000 in philanthropic services to individuals and nonprofit groups.
Please join the VisArts Challenge and help us raise $60,000 by December 31, 2016. The transformation begins with you!
