Support the Schack by giving today

Over the course of the pandemic, 62% of artists nationally have become unemployed, and our local artists are no exception. Through Schack CARES and our Artist in Residence program, we have employed 34 artists and arts professionals to create artwork and programming for Schack Art Center. 

As schools moved online, we grew our education programming to meet our community’s needs.  We launched our Schack SPARKS program, delivering free art kits, lesson plans and art engagement activities to over 2,000 students in grade schools where 70 - 85% of students are low income.  

Teen Nights went virtual, offering free art activities to over 1,000 participants this past year. Teens learned from nationally acclaimed illustrators, painters, animators and artists while remaining connected to peers through these live, online sessions. 

Our Arts Alternatives program, which provides support to justice-involved youth, not only continued but thrived during this time. Participants collaborated to create a children’s book, Possible Animal Athletes that has become a community activity as part of our Schack Story Stroll. 

70% of the Schack’s budget comes from earned income: retail sales, class fees and hot shop rentals. In 2020, Schack Art Center’s earned income dropped to 24%. In 2021, our earned revenue is trending upward, but we’re still operating at a fraction of our typical budget. 

Please join us in supporting our mission by giving today.

Your contribution means we can:

continue to provide educational programming to our lowest income youth and teens

provide rotating world-class art exhibitions, admission-free

keep our glassblowing furnaces lit so our glass artists can keep creating

remove barriers to art access and education, giving opportunities to local youth. 

Thank you for your continued support and belief that art and culture are the very heart of community life, to be enjoyed by everyone.
