Arts Patron Circle

In a region as naturally endowed and as prosperous as ours, patronage by people of vision, influence and financial means is essential for sustained artistic vitality.  The Arts Patrons Circle, begun in 2000, is comprised of individuals who believe passionately that the arts enhance and define the quality of life; understand that significant investment in the arts spurs economic development; know that sustained quality arts programming requires private patronage; and recognize the importance of cultivating the next generation of artists, audiences and arts patrons.


If you are interested in joining this group of community leaders who are deeply committed to the values that the arts provide, please contact the Shoreline Arts Alliance or you may donate.
