ARS Circle: Are You In?

ARS circle: are you in?

ARS Arts & Culture Center (ARS) is a community art center, offering cultural arts, applied arts, fine arts, and outreach programs. Our programming embraces our whole community and is recognized by our signature sculpture program, “I Am The Greatest.”

ARS fosters personal growth for youth through positive interaction, and social development. We use fine, applied, and cultural arts, along with the powerful vehicle of public art to educate our youth. ARS has a distinctive focus to bring youth with diverse social, racial, and economic backgrounds together through these principles.

ARS saves lives, giving hope to the youth that feel hopeless, giving youth the opportunity for empowerment when they feel powerless. ARS believes that you can say more through art than you can through words alone.

Anna Russo Sieber, founder and executive director, along with the ARS Board of Directors, have committed to embark on a sustainability journey to ensure the future of ARS and its life changing programs. We anticipate that this funding from the Circle will underwrite our three-year path, and will increase our sustainable future. ARS would like you to join the Circle for a 3-year partnership to help us reach our goal.

It is our time! Are you in? We ask you to support and be a part of this journey.
