VisArts’ Vibrancy Fund

Give Once

VisArts needs you! Due to Covid-19, we’ve closed our building to protect the health and safety of our staff and community. We’re working remotely to provide virtual opportunities to create and connect with you – but because we’ve had to cancel or postpone classes and events, the next few months will be financially challenging.

We’re mindful that you’re also facing uncertainty in these unprecedented times – but we hope you’ll make a donation of any size to VisArts’ Vibrancy Fund. Your support during this crisis will ensure we can maintain operations and be prepared to offer outstanding education and gallery programs as soon as we can safely open our doors. Together, we’ll not only survive – we’ll thrive!

Your monthly or one-time gift of any amount will help VisArts:

  • Keep our dedicated staff employed
  • Offer programs to spark creativity, including virtual daily drawing prompts, video classes, gallery tours, artist talks, and more
  • Help out-of-work artists find funding so they can get back to creating
  • Re-open to launch our summer camps and continue our year-round education and gallery programs
