“If a patron buys from an artist who needs money (needs money to buy tools, time, food), the patron then makes himself equal to the artist; he is building art into the world; he creates.” —Ezra Pound
The arts play an integral role in building a diverse and vibrant community, from changing the landscape of a neighborhood to making a lasting difference on a personal level. From connecting you to emerging and established local artists to the latest innovative new media installations, Artisphere is committed to creating artistic experiences that celebrate human expression and provide insight into the artistic process. Your support significantly impacts our ability to continue to present the arts experiences and programming you love.
In order to sustain and continue programming at this level, Artisphere has begun the process to create a 501c3 non-profit fundraising arm to help offset programmatic and operating needs as well as institutional capacity building.
Artisphere offers several options for giving:
You can contribute to our new mobile giving initiative, STEAM, to help put the Arts in innovation. Simply text the word STEAM to 20222 and your cell phone bill will be charged a fixed $10 amount. It’s a quick and no-hassle way for you to show your support and help fuel creativity and ignite innovation. Learn more about STEAM.
