Help us meet our Give to the Max Day goal!

With your help, we've been at work bringing to life more accessible art education, inclusive arts engagement, and immersive art exhibitions. To deliver even more art opportunities in 2023, we need your support. Please consider a donation to the DAI.

What has our 2022 looked like?

294 total events (so far)

Near-daily art classes, open studio sessions, artist talks, workshops, salons, critiques, and receptions filled the DAI events calendar.

66 FREE events

With programming like Touchstone Award-winning BAM camp, Free ArtDAI, Teen Open Studio, the Power of Art Series, and free artist talks at Art Nights Out, we had more free art events than weeks in 2022!

18 exhibitions

We averaged one gallery de-installation & new installation every three weeks to bring fresh artist voices to the DAI's always-free galleries.

120 artists brought together for the Annual Member Show

Seeing the talent of our member artists all in one place is well worth the logistics of hosting over 100 artworks!

36 artists hired as class instructors

Supporting working artists brings real-world artist experience to every class & camp.

Our 2022 calendar has been packed, and the DAI team is already hard at work creating free & accessible art opportunities for 2023. All 294+ DAI events this year were only possible because of donors, members, volunteers, visitors, and supporters like you.

Will you support our efforts with a $20 contribution?
