Your business is listed on the Art Walk map and website as well as gallery signage for the month of the exhibit. The cost of a First Friday sponsorship is $500.
In March and October the Art Center hosts Outdoor Art Festivals that attract regional, national and international artists. Sponsorships for these two events would include your business listed in all promotional materials, on our website (along with a link to your business), hospitality tent and signage. Event sponsorships begin at $500 and can be tailored to specific needs and budget.
Academy Sponsorships include our children’s Summer Bash Program or gifts to sponsor scholarships for children in need.
