Partner with VisArts

Sponsor an Event

A thriving art scene drives employment, vibrancy, and revenue to Montgomery County. According to a study by Americans for the Arts, the nonprofit arts sector in Montgomery County produces $183 million in economic impact and $15 million in revenue. As the county’s largest visual arts organization, VisArts employs 100 individuals and annually draws 30,000 people to Rockville Town Square. Our partnerships with local businesses have resulted in public art installations, increased tourism, and paid work for artists.

Most importantly, these partnerships have strengthened our community by providing more than $160,000 annually in artist stipends, scholarships, free classes, and discounts for individuals and groups, ensuring that our creative experiences are widely accessible. We rely on our business partners to expand these opportunities.

There are many ways for businesses to partner with VisArts.
