Dear friends of Queer|Art,
Thanks to a very generous supporter, all donations made to Queer|Art between now and the end of 2018 will be matched up to $30,000!
This means, between now and New Year’s, your donations of $25, $100, $250, $500 or more will make twice the impact on the work we do to support and empower a diverse community of LGBTQ+ artists.
With your support, last year’s matching donor campaign exceeded our $25k fundraising goal by more than one thousand dollars. This year’s donor has challenged us to raise that goal by another $5k. We can do this!
It has been a particularly momentous year for Queer|Art:
Our staff and board have doubled (make it a double - it’s a theme!)
We moved to a new office on 2nd Ave
We launched a new $10k grant for women(+) dance artists
We presented a surprise pop-up installation for Queer|Art|Pride at Macy’s flagship store
We kicked off the “After Mentorship” series with three exhibitions in Provincetown
And we struck up a new partnership with The LGBT Center to present this year’s Queer|Art|Mentorship Annual exhibition for a full two-month run (on view through December 31).
These are big steps for us to make in such a short time, and we could not have gotten here without you.
We invite you to stand with us now as we embark on the next chapter of this inspiring and important work.Every donation helps to provide creative and professional mentorship for artists, production funds for artists’ projects, and presentation funds for artist programs.
Donate now. Make your dollars count twice.
With appreciation, in advance, of your care and support,
Ira Sachs, Executive Director
Travis Chamberlain, Managing Director
"To be paired with somebody in your own creative field who has the experience, has the energy and the drive, and the desire to shape the next generation of queer artists, is an invaluable gift. When I look at where my script was a year ago to where it is now a year later...through Moe's guidance in the Mentorship program, it's a completely different play. And I'm very very proud of it. Moe is much more than a professional mentor to me now, she is truly a friend."
