The Washington Literacy Center is one of 10 recipients that will receive artwork for permanent donation through ACCR’s Art+ Community series.
The Art Connection in the Capital Region (ACCR) enriches lives by expanding access to original works of visual art within underserved communities throughout the Greater Metropolitan Washington, DC area.
The ACCR mission is primarily achieved through the facilitation of an innovative art donation and placement program that brings together artists and collectors willing to donate their artwork with qualifying nonprofit community service or public equivalent agencies that have no funding for art purchases.
In addition, ACCR organizes several exhibitions annually as a part of its Art + Community series. Artists are invited to submit artwork through a juried process where, upon selection, the work is featured in a professional gallery or public space. During the exhibition, qualified nonprofits are invited to choose artwork that they feel is appropriate for their agencies. ACCR guides the agencies throughout the selection and placement process, and the artwork is considered a permanent donation to the recipient agency.
ACCR will host a public reception to honor participating artists and nonprofits.
