While our gallery has been closed due to the pandemic, we have continued to educate, engage, and enhance your community through the visual arts. You are invited to view virtual tours of our monthly exhibits and interviews with the artists at www.artsvisalia.org. By appointment, individuals or small groups may enter the gallery to view current exhibits and purchase handcrafted items from our gift shop.
Our most popular adaptation has been the creation of educational art kits, complete with snacks, for students to create at home. Staff developed the projects, filmed the demonstration videos, assembled supplies, and mailed the kits to nearly 400 children. Exceeding our outreach of last year’s summer arts program, the kits were joyfully received by young artists sheltering-in-place.
Each $50 donation covers the cost to produce and mail one at-home art kit.
We are committed to keeping our staff employed, maintaining our historic creamery building home, creating at-home arts education kits, and providing opportunities for all to engage in the visual arts.
YOU can help us continue by making your annual gift today!
With your support, we have fervently carried on the vision for 25 years. As we celebrate this milestone, we acknowledge and thank the original building partners and all who continue to invest in making Arts Visalia a vibrant center for the visual arts in our community. Again we ask, please support the visual arts in your community.
