Art Connection in the Capital Region Seeks Artwork: Ongoing

The Art Connection in the Capital Region (ACCR) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization originated in 2004 to expand community access to art in the greater metropolitan area of Washington DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia.

Modeled after The Art Connection in Boston, which was founded by painter and sculptor Fay Chandler in 1995, ACCR facilitates the placement of original works of art donated by artists and art collectors within not-for-profit social service organizations to encourage healing and provide inspiration.

Organizations benefiting from this unique partnership often serve individuals faced with the most vulnerable circumstances and include: shelters, children's centers, and treatment facilities, amongst others.

The criterion for placement stipulates that a partnering organization must reside within the Capital Region and have no funding for art. Artwork that is donated to the not-for-profit is considered a permanent donation, cannot be sold, and must be exhibited in a secure public area where clients served by the organization have direct access to it.

To learn more about The Art Connection in the Capital Region, the communities it empowers, and the art donation process, click here or call 202-536-2607.
