What We Do

Advocacy

We recognize and celebrate the arts as a unifying agent in our community; we believe the arts strengthen and sustain our city because of its social, economic, educational, and community impact.

Education

We believe that art is a universal language, and understanding art in its various forms enriches lives, expands minds, and allows individuals to flourish. Arts education and exposure are essential to cultivating the next generation of arts patrons.

Grantmaking

We believe the arts are a vital part of a healthy, equitable society to which people of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy and participate. With this purpose, we award grants to our diverse artists and arts organizations to help sustain and support their creative impact.
