Get Involved

GAC is supported by its members, and in part by public and private foundations, as well as by corporate and individual contributions. It is through the generosity of community-minded individuals, businesses, and foundations that GAC is able to continue to present innovative exhibitions of contemporary art and art education programs to our community, free of charge. There are many ways to get involved and be at the center of it all!
