Create life-changing opportunities with Crossing Arts

Many in our community feel disconnected and uninspired. Children lack important fine-motor skills and access to the tools they need to improve them. For those living in the rural areas of our region, finding arts events and opportunities can be difficult.

Our gallery exhibits and workshops bring people together from all walks of life to enjoy a shared artistic interest and help conversations and connections bloom. Kids learn how to use tools and exercise creative thinking skills when they explore our Creativity Kits or Studio Wednesday classes.  Visitors to our space marvel over the exquisite work of our member artists in the Gift Shop. Gallery exhibits from regional and national artists are a feast for the eyes and fodder for conversation. For those that can't visit in person, we provide a smattering of online education offerings and content.

For over 20 years, Crossing Arts has been there, providing these life-changing opportunities. 

Our Board of Directors, Staff, and Volunteers are working hard to make sure that everyone has access to the arts, but with rising costs and increased demand for our services, we need your help to make it possible.

Your gift will:

Put high quality "real" art materials in our Creativity Kits so that kids can have the best possible results in their art explorations and feel a sense of success that will keep them engaged.

Give teens a safe and inspiring place to play and learn after school, under the care of a skilled and supportive teaching artist, in our Studio Wednesday program. 

Provide scholarship funds so that everyone has a chance to learn and build skills in our workshops and classes. 

Beautifully display artists’ work in our Gift Shop so that artists can earn an income from their passion and visitors can find one-of-a-kind pieces that will bring them joy for years to come.

Bring diverse local, regional, and national exhibits and artist talks to our gallery that inspire and provoke thought and conversation.

Beautify our public spaces through more public sculpture and murals.

Help us put into motion our dreams of an Art Bus, make more community collaborations, and expand our education offerings.

Please join us in creating a more vibrant community, culture, and economy by giving as generously as you're able today.  Thank you!
