Annual Campaign


Can you believe it’s almost 2020? With the start of a new decade, everyone at Art Works Downtown is excited about the potential the next ten years will hold. To kick off this new era, the Board, staff, and I have been charting AWD’s bright future with a new 5-year Strategic Plan. We see AWD as the hub for an expanded, dynamic visual arts scene in downtown San Rafael, one that is inclusive and fosters meaningful community connections


YOUR DONATION will help build this future.


Our mission is to provide an environment where visual arts thrive for the well-being of our community. It is from this solid foundation of supporting and advocating for the visual arts that we will accomplish our long-term vision. Did you know that each year AWD produces more than 44 art exhibitions, sustains 32 below-market-rate artist studios and 17 affordable housing apartments?  We also provide free public monthly Art Walks, sponsor free senior art workshops, host emerging artist residencies, and have an active membership that serves hundreds of artists. For our efforts, AWD was named 2019 Downtown Business of the Year by the San Rafael Chamber of Commerce, and our gallery was awarded “Best of Marin” by both the Pacific Sun and the Marin IJ. We’ve earned this praise because there is value in what we do.


As we look forward, it is also an opportunity to honor the artist who started it all. We are so pleased to announce that Phyllis Thelen will have a solo exhibition in all four of our galleries in January 2020. What a fantastic way to start AWD’s next chapter!


We cannot do any of this without YOU. Help us launch AWD successfully into the next decade. PLEASE SEND US YOUR TAX-DEDUCTIBLE GIFT TODAY.

Once again, thank you for your contribution!
