#TwitterArtExhibit utilizes social media and public engagement to generate income for charities and nonprofit organizations. 80% of our art sale goes directly to a different charity each year.
Twitter Art Exhibit
Through art, we can change the world."
has generated funds for a library suffering from deep funding cuts to purchase much-needed children’s books, for an abused women’s shelter seeking to improve the lives of the families they serve, and for an arts organization mentoring underprivileged young adults in preparation for careers in the visual arts.
SUPPORT THE WORK WE DO
TAE has always been run by volunteers giving up considerable time to make each event run smoothly and hopefully raise as many funds as possible for the chosen charity. A lot of the funds needed to put on the exhibitions and pay for materials is raised through sponsorship and donations.
If you would like to make a voluntary donation toward TAE then please use the link below. Note that this donation is not tax-deductible and will not be transferred to the charity but will help cover the expenses incurred by the TAE board and/or local curators in planning and running the exhibitions.
Some of the recurring TAE maintenance costs:
• Website domain, hosting, and maintenance
• Curator costs such as hanging & material costs
• Promotional material
• Board member travel fees
We appreciate your generosity!
CURATE AN EXHIBITION
Would you like to host a #TwitterArtExhibit?
Our goal is to have the exhibition travel to a new country each year. We are however flexible; those who can successfully host a TAE are few and far between, and we will evaluate the rotation of locations based on the proposals we receive. Keep in mind, our #1 goal is to raise funds for a deserving charity. For this reason, it’s best to hold Twitter Art Exhibits in cities that have a demonstrated art scene, and significant art-going audiences.
It takes a very organized individual to be one of our curators, and it’s a big commitment. It’s also very rewarding; you meet a lot of new people – other artists, collectors, fans, gallerists, nonprofits – and it does come with a level of recognition and respect from the community. It’s also a very positive entry on a resume, especially if you are a curator, or an artist interested in curating and/or supporting artist-led curatorial initiatives.
Exhibition sponsors, corporations and individuals are invited to sponsor one of our yearly exhibitions.
A Program Sponsorship can include:
Recognition on printed materials, including exhibition signage, on our website, and in emailed invitations and announcements via our mailing lists, plus public acknowledgment at the opening ceremony.
