Art Gallery

We are so close to having our brick-and-mortar gallery and education space. 

We have the perfect location and will be building it out soon.  

 

This building will feature our gallery space, multiple classrooms, a darkroom, and an open space for community classes, gatherings, lectures, and work.  Your sponsorship will make these moments happen. 

We have several funding and donor opportunities available. 

 

 

 

Cultivate Expansion:  Capital Campaign 

The new Cultivate gallery and education space is 3,000 sq feet and will house a state-of-the-art contemporary art gallery, studio classroom, office space, darkroom, and exhibition storage.  The gallery space will include movable walls and lighting equipped for 2d, 3d, as well as installation and new media work. The expansive studio classroom will share floor-to-ceiling windows, cabinets with materials for our high-quality materials, and a beautiful and welcoming space for learning, connection, and growth. 

 

Your support allows us to continue our mission on a bigger scale - reaching artists and students locally, regionally, and nationally.  In our mere seven months as an organization, we have established a team of 40+ experts, supported artists with livable wages in their art practices, educated artists on elevating their careers through practical art business courses, and taught over 200 children. 

In our contemporary art gallery work, we will share six exhibitions a year, and aim to exhibit at prestigious art fairs such as Expo Chicago within two years.  Our studio classroom will share over 150 fine art education courses in a year, and also 25 online courses for both accessibility and to serve our national audiences.  Our artist resource center will connect and elevate professional working artists from their studio to curators and gallery owners across the country.

Sponsorship Funds 

We believe that everyone should have access to a vibrant arts learning environment, so we have established a sponsorship program.  This program ensures that every child and every student in our art education courses can have fun, and a high level of art learning.  This sponsorship may also support our art business courses, where artists are gaining essential business skills to elevate their careers.

Annual gifts or recurring gifts are essential to our operating budget.  One-time gifts or reoccurring gifts support our mission and ensure that all students and artists have high-quality programming and materials.
