Our PAA PANDEMIC PIVOT is underway! Like each of you and like every arts organization we know, the PAA had to pivot in this unprecedented time. We are determined to continue to advance our mission to foster the appreciation of contemporary visual art in Southern California, but because of COVID we are not able to have an in-person or virtual benefit this year. Instead, this effort will be our only direct fundraising appeal to our members and patrons this year.
A colorful, eye-catching patron appeal designed by Sara Pelton, with an enclosed donation envelope, should have wended its way to your mailbox by now. The initial response has been fantastic from both members and friends of PAA. More than ever we will be relying on your generosity to fund the exhibitions and projects which will be submitted to our Grants and Impact Awards teams for consideration next fall.
We are already seeing signs of a return to normalcy, and we expect to pivot back to a fantastic 21st Biennial Art Auction in Spring 2022. But for now, we hope you will open your wallets wide and give generously to our first (and we hope last!) PAA PANDEMIC PIVOT. All donations received by May 15 will be recognized on our website. Thank you so much for your ongoing generous support of the PAA!
