Wish List

At the Shemer Art Center we recognize that sometimes our patrons have access to items that we might need, and in support of our operations they might prefer to donate items rather than make a financial contribution.  So in recognition of this opportunity the Shemer Art Center has compiled a Wish List to fulfill specific needs. We work to keep our list current, but if you have any questions regarding anything listed here or any specific needs we might have, please feel free to call us at 602-262-4727 for more information.

Advertising & Marketing
Assistance with promotional items we print, like class schedules; exhibition calendars, postcards, banners and signs; art lecture reminders; event flyers and posters; venue rental packages and other marketing materials.  For events, support of an advertising budget or other promotion opportunities such as flyers, church bulletins, banners and signage.

Operations
Outdoor Signage – We are currently seeking a donor to help us improve our event signage.

Adopt-An-Easel – Adopt-An-Easel for $150, which includes a recognition plaque and a $100 supporter membership.

Naming Opportunities
We are currently seeking sponsors interested in naming rights to our Exhibition Gallery Rooms and Art Studios.  Perfect for philanthropic Valley families looking for ways to leave a family legacy in Arcadia.

Other projects we would like to develop include a Sculpture Garden Walking Tour Map and an Audio Tour – the cost for these is estimated to be approximately $2,500.
