A WEEKEND OF FINE ART, FOOD, FASHION, AND HOMES BENEFITING ART PROGRAMS FOR SANTA FE'S YOUTH

 


A GREAT TIME FOR A CREATIVE CAUSE: Now in its 14th season, ARTfeast is heralded as one of the most inspired reasons for a getaway. The weekend of festivities celebrates the City Different’s world-class chefs and restaurants, an international array of vintners, original designer fashions and unique homes, along with nationally and regionally prominent artists represented by members of the Santa Fe Gallery Association. All of this fun and food helps young people develop the skills needed to creatively respond to life.

ARTsmart was founded in 1993 to address the lack of funding for art programs and supplies in Santa Fe public schools. In a city built on and sustained by the arts, ARTsmart is committed to funding the creative thinkers of tomorrow. Every year ARTsmart organizes ARTfeast as its major fundraiser. Contributions are made through ticket sales, event and program underwriters, donors, and the volunteerism of hundreds of businesses and educators.

Through 2010, ARTsmart distributed just under $835,000 to ARTsmart projects, public school programs, art related organizations and endowment funds. In 2010, $111,632 was distributed.
