Like you, we at Kennedy Heights Arts Center have been challenged to navigate in this new reality. We started 2020 with the promise of a full year of exciting arts projects—then everything we had planned came to a screeching halt. We were forced to cancel 97 programs and events, and our earned revenue plummeted by $175,000—a reduction of more than 1/3 of our annual budget.
But creativity didn’t stop.
Our team innovated new ways to keep you inspired and connected during this time of distance and isolation, and to take meaningful action against systemic racism. We doubled down on our commitment to the community. Amid unprecedented challenges, we’ve been busier than ever, creatively adapting to support our community’s needs.
And so have you.
Your response has been inspiring. Neighbors helping neighbors, sharing creativity, working for justice, holding onto hope.
We learned that in difficult times, arts and community are more necessary than ever.
Please help sustain this momentum and ensure that 100% of our programs remain affordable to everyone with your tax-deductible gift to Kennedy Heights Arts Center today.

Artists wishing to submit work to be juried for the Art Shop should drop off art samples, minimum of 3 per medium, for review by the Shop Screening Committee, along with the completed Art Shop Application.
The Committee looks for quality and originality in the work from design through production. Jewelry is to be created by the artist either in the setting or in the components or both. Applicants will be notified within two weeks of submission of work.
As a volunteer, your time and talents can be used in many ways: assisting art instructors in classes for youth, helping put on special events, helping with building renovation projects and landscaping, and more. Our calendar is filled with arts exhibits, classes, festivals and concerts, and our volunteers help make them all happen.
Give us some of your time, and you will discover a renewed sense of community.
