support root division
As we reflect on the past year, we are thankful for your help as we continue to support our community-minded artists and artist-minded community. We are continuing to empower artists to amplify art’s positive impact and inspire youth. We affirm that artists are an essential part of any thriving community—as storytellers, visionaries, and interpreters—sowing seeds of promise that bloom into better futures for all.
Root Division awards emerging artists with studio space and valuable resources in exchange for volunteering. Despite the challenges of reopening, we have welcomed back visitors and students, continued accepting a diverse cohort of artists and fellows into the program, and hosted a fantastic 20-Year Anniversary Celebration. And best of all, our artists and fellows are back in classrooms teaching free art classes to youth in eight partner programs—continuing our investment in nurturing creative possibilities in youth.
We would be grateful for your support at any level — $100, $500, $2500 — to help us nourish our dynamic ecosystem. Your donation keeps our programming accessible, puts dollars directly in the hands of artists and teachers, and opens the door to creativity and inspiration for all.
