Kimball Art Center is dedicated to providing arts access, education, engagement and experience to everyone. Through our exhibitions, educational arts programs, and events, KAC provides a platform and a place for artists and arts enthusiasts to come together to explore, celebrate, develop and cherish the creative spark that lives within us all. We believe that art brings meaning, joy, direction, community enhancement and inspiration to the 85,000+ community members we serve each year. We know that art changes lives and brings people together, sustaining our vibrant community and inspiring positive change in the world around us. Monies raised from the event help support:
- Art education and curriculum in public schools, including cross-curriculum lesson plans integrating art into core subjects, and after-school art programs in area elementary schools.
- Access to thought-provoking exhibitions.
- Scholarships for low-income children to participate in art classes and camps.
- Hands-on instruction for teenagers dedicated to the study and practice of the visual arts.
