Donate to VisArts

Throughout history, people have found community and healing through art. Art sustains our spirit, strengthens our connections, and helps us find firm footing in a rapidly changing world. We believe that the arts are essential, and we’re dedicated to our mission of transforming individuals and communities through the visual arts.

We’re inspired by the many individuals like you who make this work possible. Your monthly or one-time gift to VisArts will help us:

  • Provide more scholarships and free classes so that our programs are accessible for all.
  • Increase stipends, subsidized studio space, and opportunities for artists.
  • Keep our galleries free and open to the public.
  • Increase enrollment in our VisAbility Art Lab, a studio for artists with disabilities.

Your support helps all people experience the transformational power of the visual arts.

Thanks for making these transformations possible.
