We welcome you to explore our new website (www.LQAF.com) chock full of important information on the Foundation and our activities and programs.
You will discover navigation of the site is much more user friendly, facilitating quick access to what you want and need to know, while encouraging your feedback to help us continue to improve our service to the community.
One significant new component of the website is the Artist’s Galleries. For 27 years La Quinta Arts Foundation has nurtured artists beginning with elementary school art education, on to college scholarship awards, then on to providing opportunities for contemporary working artists to display and sell their work.
There have always been more artists than we can accommodate with the limitations of exhibition space and time evidenced by the almost 1,000 submissions we receive for La Quinta Arts Festival each year, when we can reasonably accommodate one-fifth of the applicants.
This is not the case any longer in the virtual world. Artists will have the opportunity for patrons to link to their websites through LQAF with a goal of generating commerce for the artists.
