La Quinta Arts Foundation is guided by its mission of “Promoting and Cultivating the Arts.” We use proceeds from our various fund raising and cultural events to support artists, artistic endeavors, educate art students, and for cultural enrichment programs for all segments of the community.
Each year our public art events including La Quinta Arts Festival and Art Under the Umbrellas, provide an opportunity to more than 300 artists to sell their creations, while offering the community many different weekends during fall, winter and spring to enjoy outdoor fine art events.
To date, La Quinta Arts Foundation Visual Arts Scholarship Program has provided more than $1.1 million in college scholarships. La Quinta Arts Foundation is thankful for our many partners: artists, volunteers, sponsors, students, members, and patrons who help support our mission.
La Quinta Arts Foundation is a proud member of the National Association of Independent Artists.
