It’s all about our members
Da Vinci Art Alliance puts our members first by providing a combination of critically engaged exhibitions, educational programming, and community outreach opportunities. Membership supports individual artists in the Philadelphia area and helps to sustain both our vibrant community and our building.
Da Vinci Art Alliance is a membership organization for artists and art-lovers. DVAA is governed by a Board of Directors and run by professional staff. Our membership model provides visual artists with a platform to share their work, build community and connect with thousands of annual visitors while sustaining the organization through membership dues. Artist memberships are for adult artists of any medium who are looking for deep connections with an organization and other passionate makers and creators. Supporting memberships are also available for art-lovers, appreciators, administrators and collectors to support DVAA’s mission! Memberships are a main pillar of DVAA’s annual budget and are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
