VisArts’ Vibrancy Fund

Give Once

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a serious impact on the arts, culture, and creativity economies around the world. While the temporary closure of our facility from March through June forced us to cancel in-person classes and programs, it also provided us with an opportunity to be nimble and responsive in designing virtual opportunities to create and connect with you.

Thanks to the generous support of our community, VisArts has continued our work of transforming individuals and communities through the visual arts. It has not been easy and like many other organizations, we have had to reduce full-time staff and cut expenses in various ways during this difficult time.

We are mindful that many of you have also faced uncertainty and we are especially grateful for your support. While the immediate future is still uncertain, we believe that together, we will not only survive, we will 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
