Visual Arts Center — Support

Philanthropic donations sustain Visual Arts Center activities, from the annual artist-in-residence program to student exhibitions to unique programs and events that serve the Austin arts community, all of which provide students with hands-on educational experiences. Gifts at all levels are appreciated — from vital investment in operating expenses, to annual underwriting support, to special programmatic support through the Visual Arts Center Endowment.

Annual support at the $1,000 level and above is acknowledged through the VAC’s membership program, the Underwriter’s Circle. Each Underwriter’s Circle member receives invitations to exclusive events, as well as recognition on the donor wall at the entrance to the VAC. Select naming opportunities are also available for a number of superior exhibition spaces within the Visual Arts Center. Partnerships with local businesses and organizations are always welcome to support public programming and special events.
