Introducing ‘Adopt an Artist’

adopt_388YES Art Works is excited to introduce Adopt•An•Artist, a sponsorship opportunity designed to further the goals and aspirations of YES Art Works’ artists.

The Adopt•An•Artist initiative is an opportunity for individuals and businesses to ensure that artists with disabilities receive the same opportunities and exposure as any other working artist. Through public presentation of their work, our artists become a part of the greater community. They earn income and recognition for their creative ability, contribute to a diverse and culturally rich landscape, and have a sense of pride, motivation and positive self-image as a result.

Adopt•An•Artist fosters a community of artists and sponsors to ensure that each artist receives professional-grade materials, exceptional artistic instruction and premium exhibition and promotional opportunities both locally and nationally. It also provides partnerships with visiting artists, and a secure, creative home of peers and fellow artists.
