Art San Diego Celebrates 10 Years by Paying It Forward with Access to Art

Art San Diego is always striving to make an impact on the local community. To further its goal of bringing the community together through art and art awareness, Art San Diego, in partnership with UBS Financial Services launched the Access to Art program in 2018. Access to Art works with selected charities and those they serve to share opportunities in art, design, business development, and more.

Initially created in 2018 to further its goal of bringing the community together through art and art awareness, Art San Diego, in partnership with UBS Financial Services  launched the Access to Art program. The 2019 focus is on promoting and supporting organizations that serve children’s health, education, and protection.

The full roster of 2019 Access to Art partners will be announced in September, but we’re off to a fabulous start with Monarch School, Rady Children’s Hospital, ArtReach, San Diego Film Festival, Liberty Station, and the San Diego Visual Arts Network.


It all starts with IMPACT NIGHT. Sponsored by UBS Financial ServicesIMPACT NIGHT is hosted during the Opening Night Preview and designed to have an IMPACT on the community and our Access to Art partner organizations.

The invitation only event begins with red carpet arrivals at 5 p.m. with the paparazzi taking pictures. Then you’ll sip hosted beverages and nibble on tempting hors d’oeuvres while strolling the aisles of contemporary and cutting-edge artwork from top galleries—and you’ll be the first to select the pieces for your personal collection!

With donations at the door, with all proceeds going back to our nonprofit partners, an unveiling of Monarch School students’ Access to Art Projects, and more, it’s an evening to celebrate and give back to our nonprofit partners.

It’s an invitation-only event, so become an RMG VIP Passport member to ensure your invitation to IMPACT NIGHT from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10.


Last year, we hosted the first IMPACT NIGHT, presented by UBS Financial Services, this invitation-only event featured live and silent auctions as well as a booth auction that, combined with donations at the door and donations from Art San Diego and UBS, raised just over $12,000 for our 2018 Access to Art partners: Monarch SchoolGenerate HopeRady Children’s Hospital, and HEAL.

We thank you for the support you have given Art San Diego and the arts over the years and ask for your support as we embark on the second annual Access to Art.
