Spheres of Impact

Shaping all aspects of our exhibition, residency program and community outreach, the Spheres of Impact create dynamic partnerships between the Center and a myriad of organizations in our community, while raising the visibility of artists to spark positive social and global change.


Social Justice

Addresses issues of inclusivity, access, identity, gender, poverty, sexual orientation, privilege or religion.

Artists-in-residence are invited whose work addresses issues of inclusivity, access, identity, gender, poverty, sexual orientation, privilege or religion. Partnerships may be forged with community centers, churches, social service organizations and many others. The work of these artists help the community address issues in a deeper, more honest way with the hope of advancing conversations and thinking among the community and the artists themselves. By having artists-in-residence continue to explore these issues, the community may be able to develop a deeper understanding of the nuances of these issues and how to better address them.
