The California Center for the Arts, Escondido is dedicated to bringing people together to discover, create, and celebrate the arts. From our performing arts shows, Museum exhibitions, community festivals, and conference center events, we connect our community through the arts every day for over a quarter of a million attendees annually.
In our 2016-17 season, we worked with you to grow our thriving arts community by:
- hosting 40+ free community events annually for over 47,000 people, where families can experience visual and performing arts together
- providing 100+ education programs to over 28,000 participants, often serving as the only arts education local students receive
- featuring a wide array of performing arts shows for over 120,000 patrons, nurturing and inspiring the artists of tomorrow
Double Your Impact, Double the Memories!
Because of your support, our arts community continues to thrive, but we must do more to provide everyone with access to our inclusive arts programs. For the arts to truly be accessible to all, and to nurture future artists, we must reach more youth and more families. And thanks to a challenge grant from the Linden Root Dickinson Foundation, we can connect even more members of our community to the transformational power of the arts.
Your gift today will be matched by the Linden Root Dickinson Foundation, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000. With your help, we will raise $50,000 before December 31, 2017, to grow our arts education and outreach programs so we can discover, create, and celebrate the arts as a community.
We believe that the arts not only enhance our everyday lives, they actually help define a culture. We can put aside differences and come together over something beautiful, intriguing or up-lifting. When we appreciate the arts that enthralled audiences throughout the centuries, politics, race, our differences melt away, and for a few wonderful hours at our lovely Center for the Arts, we are united in shared experience, optimism, inspiration and harmony, making memories.
