Will you join us in supporting a non-profit arts organization that has helped emerging artists for over 90 years?
2017 has proven to be a transformational year in the long history of the Los Angeles Art Association (LAAA) and our mission to serve emerging artists in our community. Our exhibitions have gained local and national visibility, directly enhancing the careers of the most disadvantaged emerging artists.
Some might say that if all LAAA did was secure excellent exhibition opportunities for economically disadvantaged artists, it would be enough. But LAAA provides so many more opportunities for local emerging artists and the larger community. Our ArtSpeak seminars and programming expanded by 30% in 2017 – allowing an even larger cross section of artists and the public to benefit from our career preparedness workshops and panel discussions. Our mission extends to a broad cross section of artists of all mediums, career levels and socio-economic backgrounds, including those from low income communities. By supporting the emerging talent at the onset of their career path, we seek to provide artists with the experience, education and exposure needed to create and sustain a career in the arts.
The successes and expanded services we provide to local artists are impressive
and deserve to continue into 2018. I urge you to support LAAA’s 2018 Annual Fund by sending a gift today – it’s a great investment in the future of our shared cultural identity. Every donation of $500 or more will enter you in a drawing for this large original piece by Steve Galloway valued at $12,000.
Thank you for your consideration. Even $50 or $100 will make a powerful difference in the lives of Los Angeles’ most creative and underserved populations – the emerging artist.
