The Art Center


Let’s Grow

The Art Center is having a growth spurt, and we owe it all to you! Your generous support has provided quality art programs to Quincy and the surrounding area. Your encouragement has inspired us to set a course for the future. Your commitment has challenged us to grow!
As a supporter, you understand that great things happen when people come together to enjoy and create art. Please join us by making a contribution to our Let’s Grow Annual Campaign. We are working to raise $28,000 this year in order to bring more meaningful art to more people.

Here are some of the ways The Art Center is continuing to grow.

Grow Community: To Become More Inclusive
The Art Center will broaden the reach of our education programs, our exhibits, and our outreach events to be more inclusive of people from many walks of life, different races, and different ethnicities.

Grow Impact: To Expand Our Advocacy For Art Education
The Art Center will continue to design classes, lessons, and activities that integrate art into educational curriculums, and show how art enhances learning.

Grow Ideas: To Increase Our Connections With People Throughout the Region
The Art Center will continue collaboration with organizations and individuals in the community. Art helps us learn about ourselves, learn about each other, learn about the world. When we come together to learn, our community grows stronger, happier, and healthier.

Through Art: To Meet National Standards
The Art Center will continue making improvements to our facility and organization in order to reach our goal of achieving accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums. This will have a strong influence on the quality of the work we exhibit, the preservation of our permanent collection, and educational opportunities we provide.
