You are the backbone of our organization because you make all of our work possible. Your gift to the capital campaign is extremely important to the York community, as it will fuel the creative well-being of your community well into the future.
You have until the end of March to help us make this campaign a success. Please consider making as generous a gift as you can. Thank you!
Every Spring, YorkArts puts together an exhibit celebrating “the Art Collector”, an exhibition series which we call Collecting Cultural Icons. This year we are dividing the Collecting Cultural Icons series into two parts, (compared to the usual one), to broaden the concept of what it means to collect art.
New testimonials will be added every Tuesday throughout our Capital Campaign.
We begin the month of February with $957,500 raised from the generous and inspired people of York County (and beyond!).

An opening reception and awards ceremony for “Emerging Visions” will be held on Thursday, February 5th from 6pm to 8pm at the YorkArts Gallery, where attendees are invited to enjoy light refreshments as they preview original bodies of work by nine undergraduate artists. These small collections, ranging in media and subject matter, highlight each young artist’s development towards a distinct and personal style.
Guy played an instrumental role during YorkArts’ infancy. By courageously communicating his passion and vision, he established the relationships with the first donors that would sustain YorkArts during the early growth years. In 1997, Guy’s business and finance experience was crucial in the financial and contractual discussions that led to the acquisition of 10 N. Beaver St., which was YorkArts’ first permanent home and remains its current location. His ability to read people and assess their potential led to the hiring of the first full time staff, among them the first executive director, Joanne Riley, who later went on to lead the Cultural Alliance of York County for more than 15 years. Guy also fostered the development of long lasting core programs, such as Art in the Parks.
A community is made up of many parts: business, sports, education, the arts. Art — and access to art — defines the cultural maturity of a community.
For the past 25 years, YorkArts has been a leader in bringing art and art classes to the York community. Sustaining and expanding arts education are priorities of YorkArts. Under the banner of “Thriving Communities Start with Creativity,” we are proud to co-chair a campaign to raise $1.3 million for this valued organization.
