The Art Center


Quincy Art Center believes everyone should have access to art. Our mission is to connect people to the power of art by creating opportunities to experience, make, and share art. When you give to the Art Center, you make it possible for us to fulfill our mission. 

When you give to the Art Center, you: 

    • Bring art into the schools through our stART program
    • Bring the world to Quincy through exhibits that will teach people about other cultures
    • Preserve our 400 + Permanent Collection works of art for future generations to enjoy
    • Provide art opportunities for people throughout the region through community engagement
    • Help with the upkeep of our beautiful building
    • Make it possible for children who can’t afford to take classes to experience the Power of Art through scholarships

Support for the Art Center is eligible for tax deductions. Businesses receive sponsorship recognition when they donate to quarterly programs. For more information on how to support the Art Center, contact Director of Development Alta King at or call (217) 223-5900.
