Guided Private Tours for Non-profit groups that include schools, special needs and senior groups. Here is a recent tour by Active Seniors from the Winston Family YMCA.

We Reached: $4001
Fundraising Dates: 9/1/2020 – 10/15/2020
Other Community Outreach Projects in prior years:
In October 2009, The Art Center created and hosted its first charity event, Artsy Bras, to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure and The Donna Foundation.
We are currently selling totebags at the gallery to help raise funds for materials to create more murals at our Duval County Schools. Watch the video below to see some of our projects.
In an effort to give back to the community, The Art Center has in the past provided murals free of charge (not including supplies) to enhance the property of non-profit organizations. Due to the high volume of requests and limited resources, we have implemented a mural request policy. If you are a 501(c)(3) organization and desire to have a mural, please complete the following form and a board member from TAC will contact you to discuss the terms of the agreement.
