Celebrating 40 years of the New Art Center – We need your support!
Reflect on the Past
40 Years ago Beverly Bernson and Judy Chalfen created the New Art Center. Ever since, the Center has been a place for everyone to experience the arts. They were local folks, just like you, and they recognized that our success needs your participation. As relevant today as it was 40 years ago, their vision and yours guide our future.
Sustain the Present
Your support for the Annual Fund helps our students and the wider community develop passion and creativity in the visual arts with inspired faculty and cutting edge experiences of art. Scholarship support ensures that NAC classes are accessible to all, regardless of means or physical ability.
Viola and Noreen (not their real names) live with their mom in Newton subsidized housing in refuge from domestic violence. The sisters thrive in our summer art program, exploring newfound skills and capacities in a safe environment. Your gifts to our scholarship program, and our partnership with The Second Step, make their participation possible.
Vision for the Future
Invest today in the future of the New Art Center! Your gifts help us create new classes, workshops and programs, plan for future building needs, and provide urgently needed tech improvements throughout the Center.
Your investment to the Annual Fund directly supports the mission, vision and values of NAC:
Mission – The New Art Center offers exceptional opportunities to make, exhibit, view, think about and talk about art.
Vision – The New Art Center will become a vibrant model of a community art center, integrating the experience of art into the life of the community.
Values – The New Art Center is based on the belief that the practice of looking at, thinking about and making art helps human beings solve problems, learn from their environment, build durable communities and live meaningful lives.
Please help with a visionary gift, to keep the Center growing and strong as we plan an exciting and accessible future!
