Corporate Partnership

The Visual Arts Center hosts the Empty Bowls Charity every year.

Hosting Community programs like making bowls for the Empty Bowls Charity would not be possible without support from Corporate Partners

Your partnership demonstrates your commitment to our community and helps us achieve our financial goals, so we can continue to enrich our community with great programs. Below are some of the programs and activities your partnership funds support: 

      • Summer Art Camps for youth/teens
      • Empty Bowls Charity for homeless
      • Grant matching contributions
