What do you and our spiral staircase have in common?
For many of our friends in and around Knox County, for many years, that spiral staircase has been your connection to art classes, culture, imagination, and fun! You have the opportunity to bring the magic of the spiral staircase to hundreds of children and adults this year, YOU have the power to ensure the arts will continue to thrive in our community.
Your $25, $50, or $100 year-end tax-deductible donation will allow us to LEAP into 2016, a year of many new and exciting challenges! Donate now and help us...
- Bring the Permanent Collection (yes we have one!) out of the closet! Our collection, now over 550 pieces, has been in existence for 90 years; an amazing cadre of artists and their works, built over time, is begging for its own exhibition.
- Celebrate all the of the fantastic arts and artists that are part of our community at Art Before Your Eyes, a premier arts event for our area.
- Battle for the Alley was such a success, that we feel like tackling another alley in town! This spring/early summer, local artists will be making their mark once again…this is an event you don’t want to miss!
- Summer Camp for artists in training will spark the imagination of kids (6th – 10th grade) with projects based in painting, drawing, clay, photography, found objects, the list is endless! We don’t leave the big kids out either, junior and seniors are encouraged to apply to be camp coordinators!
We look forward to inspiring our community for years to come but can only do so with your support! We thank you for your commitment to a vibrant arts community and your dedication to the Galesburg Civic Art Center and its magical spiral staircase!
