As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To enhance the human experience through the visual arts.
We produce major exhibitions featuring internationally and nationally recognized artists and local Vermont artists and artwork. We offer art classes for youth and adults year-round and collaborate with businesses and organizations to bring the arts to our region.We create original special events driven by artists that connect our broad audience of Vermonters and visitors with creativity. Our class offerings include everything from figure drawing to video animation, Photoshop to plein aire painting. Helen Day Art Center offers scholarships for classes to ensure that all artists, young and old have access to the visual arts. We also welcome over one thousand students a year to docent led tours of our exhibitions through school bus scholarships made possible by our member, donors and sponsors.
Recent exhibitions have featured contemporary photography, sculpture, painting, mixed media and installation artwork from Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, New England, Canada, China, Mexico, and from the perspective of journalists, muralists, dissidents, environmentalists, travelers, cartoonists, and Native American artists.
