GiveBig 2021: Keep Artists Afloat

Schack Artist in Residence Summer 2021 Program

Last year, your generous donations during GiveBig 2020 kept Schack afloat. This year, we turn our focus to providing a lifeline to artists, ensuring they have both financial and emotional support. After supporting 30 part-time artists during our 2020 Schack CARES residency program, we continue this legacy with Schack Artist in Residence Summer 2021 Program.

Our Schack Artist in Residence Summer 2021 Program gets artists back in their studios, creating new works. Participating artists will take part in a full-time, month-long residency creating art. To make this program work, we need $20,000. Having graciously received $10,000 from two private donors, we are asking for your support to help us raise additional funds to help make this program happen.

In 2020, Schack supported 30 part-time artists during the Schack CARES program including Alex Vincini, pictured here

Your donation today goes directly towards our Artist in Residence Summer 2021 program.
