If you (heart) ArtReach, 

support our artist-centric work.

The ArtReach St. Croix Gallery Program features exhibitions of local artists. Painting, photography, ceramics and more, rotate throughout the seasons. Your gift celebrates and promotes the diverse talent in the St. Croix Valley.

Hikers, bikers and art fair visitors find the Mobile Art Gallery in parks and festival sites throughout warm weather months. Take Me to the River is a series of art fairs, festivals, open studios and arts events across the St. Croix Valley every autumn. Your gift amplifies these events, helping locals and visitors alike find art at every bend in the river!

The NEA Big Read is a competitive federal grant that has been awarded to ArtReach St. Croix for nine consecutive years! Valley-wide programs, such as traveling exhibitions, book clubs, and performing arts events foster a love of the literary arts. Your gift makes the impact of the Big Read even bigger!

Ongoing facility improvements focus on visitor services and energy-efficiency. ArtReach is the steward of the artwork that artists loan for their exhibitions in our 150+ year-old homebase. 

Your gift today will help fund this AND MORE all year long!


We've been working on some very exciting upgrades here at ArtReach. You can help make our dreams for this space come true with an exciting upgrade to our exterior.

Many of you know the beautiful handmade glass designs around our front door. We want to expand the vision of this design with a brand new front door that will be more welcoming to the public. With the help of artist Lauri Wilson with Campek Designer Doors, the original designer of the glass, we have come up with a design we love that matches the art glass and gives us a new and improved look. 

We are also in need of new signage and lighting, so that people can find us more easily. Artist and graphic designer Jennifer Anderson has designed an awesome new custom corner sign for us! The addition of these new elements will not only make ArtReach easier to find, but also make it an even more fun and inviting space for people to explore!

The total budget for this exterior upgrade is $9,000, most of which is covered by capital funding, but we're short $2,500 and we need YOU! Help us close this gap and make this plan a reality! 

ArtReach St. Croix's board members have generously pledged to match up to $1000 for giveBIG this year! So please help us reach our goal!


Your gift today will:

  • SUPPORT GALLERY PROGRAMS that feature and celebrate local artists
  • BUILD OPPORTUNITIES FOR WORKING ARTISTS, such as the Holiday Gift Gallery
  • ELEVATE THE VISIBILITY of valley arts events during Take Me to the River & year-round with our shared, online event calendar
  • STRENGTHEN EXCEPTIONAL PROGRAMS offered during the NEA Big Read with performing arts events, book discussions and traveling exhibitions
  • AMPLIFY OUR ABILITY TO ADVOCATE by supporting special projects, including this year’s Arts & Economic Prosperity research in partnership with St. Croix Valley Foundation and the Americans for the Arts.
