Get Involved

One aspect that sets Cary apart and makes it so unique is the public art prominently displayed around town. Our public art helps create Cary’s distinct identity, it’s sense of place, and the look and feel of the community we call home. Corporate, community and individual support is needed because it is primarily private dollars, not public funding, that makes our programs possible.



There are so many ways to help Cary Visual Art continue its mission to promote, inspire, encourage, and support visual arts for the uplifting of the human spirit in the Cary community. Thank you for considering your support for our community programming, exhibitions, and art placements. The Arts are made possible by support from citizens like you!




Cary Visual Art offers many ways to give your time and financial resources to furthering our mission to promote, inspire, encourage, and support visual arts for the uplifting of the human spirit in the Cary community.
