All proceeds of this campaign go directly to projectART’s ARTSPACE fund.
ARTSPACE will serve as a student-run exhibit space that will display work by contemporary Texas artists and give students the opportunity to learn how to run an exhibit from the inside out. ProjectART will pair both high school and college-age students with professional mentors for real-world courses in entrepreneurship, curation, gallery operations, and marketing. We’re also busy designing a curriculum that will align this project with local school practicum and career-focused initiatives.
It will also be a place to house our growing mentorship program, workshops, performances (including poetry readings and live music), after school art classes and summer camps, and a safe space for local teens to gather.
We are very excited to bring this space to Wimberley, and are honored you’re considering making a donation. Now through December 31, 2022, any amount you donate will be matched by an anonymous donor up to $45,000. Thank you for your support.
projectART is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Your donation is tax-deductible.
This puzzle was envisioned as a way for you to physically participate in the creation of ARTSPACE. We want to thank JB Manning of Wimberley Puzzle Company for his donation of time to this project.
Dear Art Supporter,
On a warm afternoon in May, students, mentors, and community members gathered to celebrate a successful projectMENTOR season. Locals chatted as they viewed the products of 11 collaborations in a variety of mediums. The associated auction raised additional funds to help keep this program going. Three months later, proceeds from PROM and boots on the ground fundraising contributed to more than $6,500 in donations to area schools. These programs are possible because of you.
We now have the opportunity to create a physical space in Wimberley: a space to showcase contemporary Texas artists; a space for workshops, performances, and summer camps; a space to house our growing mentorship program; and perhaps most importantly, a safe space for teens to gather…
Now through December 31, 2022, donations, up to $45,000, will be matched by a generous anonymous donor, giving us the opportunity to raise the $90,000 needed to make this space a reality.
With your support, we can achieve this goal. As one of our angel donors, we are approaching you first with a special opportunity. ARTSPACE is slated to include several named exhibition spaces as well as a large donor mural. The names will be prominently displayed within the building, honoring donors who believed in ARTSPACE from the beginning. Please consider supporting this effort.

Remember that any amount you donate before December 31, 2022 will be doubled. Thank you for your continued support, without YOU we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.
All our gratitude,
