The Many Ways to Sponsor
The Lexington Art League
The Lexington Art League has launched an exciting new exhibition program for 2019 which employs our beautiful gallery spaces in a whole new way. In addition, we will incorporate new programs and services, such as our League Artist Fellowships, to ensure a bright future for Lexington area artists and those who appreciate and collect their work.
As a charitable organization, we need to build a community of sponsors to make these goals a reality. If you or your organization supports the league’s work and if you enjoy the vibrancy that art brings to our city, we encourage you to become a sponsor of one of our many new league programs.
Sponsors can support the Lexington Art League with direct gifts and/or in-kind donations.
To support the Lexington Art League as an individual or business sponsor, please contact Lori Houlihan at email@example.com
