Annual Fund



Galveston Arts Center


Galveston Arts Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that relies on donations to support our operations.


Galveston Arts Center is pleased to inaugurate the Clint Willour Exhibition Fund. The Fund will help to sustain the precedent of qualitative excellence in contemporary art exhibitions established by our distinguished Curator, Clint Willour. We would like to invite you to contribute to this endeavor in honor of Clint’s exemplary contribution to Galveston Arts Center and to the visual arts throughout Texas.

Exhibitions are the cornerstone of the Galveston Arts Center, and they attract thousands of visitors every year. The Clint Willour Exhibition Fund will act to inspire a life-long appreciation, awareness, and understanding of contemporary visual art to diverse audiences in our region. The Fund will support Galveston Arts Center’s Curator’s position and outstanding exhibitions of contemporary art.

All donors to the Fund will be acknowledged on donor recognition panels at the Galveston Arts Center, on our website, in signage for all future exhibitions, and in our Annual Report. Your contribution will enable the Galveston Arts Center to sustain the esteemed legacy of Clint Willour with vibrant exhibitions of outstanding contemporary art.


Please help us to make our 2016 Annual Fund the most successful one ever. Your gift is extremely important to us, because it provides immediate resources that meet our current needs and sustain our caliber of excellence that you are accustomed to. Your support is helping us use the power of art to make our community shine more brightly with vibrant cultural possibilities. Right here, right now. Everyone who works here is here to serve you. We all join together to thank you in advance for your generous tax-deductible gift.

Your contributions have helped make Galveston Arts Center what it is today. After our move to our newly renovated historic building on the Strand, we now have three galleries, a large studio/classroom, and a museum store. So, we can offer you 24 exhibitions annually and more compelling on-site programming such as our exciting lecture series, workshops by professional artists, and a plethora of exciting art classes for children, teens, and adults. We have something for all ages and all segments of our community. After all, Galveston Arts Center is a community arts center. It is your center. We are here to serve you and your family and friends – to inspire, engage, and inform you with an exploration of thought-provoking ideas about contemporary art.

Foundations, businesses and institutions can sponsor or underwrite any of GAC's available exhibits or educational enterprises. Receive recognition in all related press and print materials. Please call for details.

Your support helps us to plan for GAC’s future as an important educational and cultural organization, helping to deepen the understanding and impact of contemporary art within our community.

Donations are tax deductible.
