This May marks 12 years since New City Arts opened our first exhibition. With your generous support, we've grown a lot over the last 12 years. This spring, we need your help to raise $20,000 on our Day of Giving (May 18, 2022) to support our programs for local artists like Welcome Gallery, Charlottesville SOUP, the New City Artist Exchange, and more. 100% of New City Arts events and programs are free or low-cost.
On May 18, help us meet our $20,000 goal by making a donation:
or! Give in person outside at Welcome Gallery (114 3rd. St NE, Charlottesville, VA 22902) from 8-10AM on May 18 (... we'll have Belle donuts!)
Give early! Thanks to the generosity of Journey Group, $2,500 of your Day of Giving donations made between 8-10AM will be matched 1:1.
Check out our Day of Giving Raffles, made possible by generous community partners. Anyone who gives to New City Arts on May 18 will be automatically entered** into a drawing based on your gift amount. You will be entered into the raffle for the giving level associated with your donation and the raffle levels up-to the amount of your gift. We'll choose 1 winner per raffle category the day following the event.
