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 August 2018. With a commitment to broadening our connections by partnering with select local nonprofits—and we’re thrilled to announce that Access to Art is now an Art San Diego annual program. It all begins at Thursday’s IMPACT NIGHT, a private reception, presented by UBS Financial Services, designed to have an IMPACT on the community and our Access to Art partner organizations by creating awareness and opportunities for involvement with each of the organizations.

Paying it Forward

Access to Art works with selected nonprofits and those they serve to share opportunities in art, design, business development, and more. In the past two years, we have raised just over $20,000 for the Monarch School, Rady Children’s Hospital, Humble Design, HEAL, and ArtReach San Diego. 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 continue Access to Art’s important mission.

“It was really 100% the pleasure and honor of Monarch School to be featured in such a meaningful way at Art San Diego this year. We had a record number of 16 student artists who submitted work for the Access to Art booth, and the kids who attended the VIP Opening Night Party were just glowing the following day. Experiences like this truly can be life-changing for them!” — Rachelle Archer, expressive arts specialist at the Monarch School
