Dear Friends and Family,

Real Art Ways depends on you. And we need you now.

In September, in years past, we’ve hosted fundraising events—at Real Art Ways. We’ve netted $100,000 each year.

This year we can’t be together in person. But we can be together in spirit. And we believe we can generate $100,000 to support our work.

We won’t be able to do it together in one night. So we’re taking 30 nights—the month of September—to meet our goal.

Thanks to our sponsors, the good news is... we’re nearly halfway there! And the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has agreed to match your contribution dollar for dollar.

You will make it possible for Real Art Ways to survive, and thrive. Please help us meet our goal.

With gratitude,

Will K. Wilkins and The Real Team

Real Art Ways is recognized nationally and internationally for the quality of work we present. We support emerging artists as well as those in later stages of their careers, and our program includes local, national, and international artists. We think that contemporary art is something everyone can appreciate and enjoy, and we work to make sure our programs speak to newbies and aficionados alike.

Real Art Awards

Six visual artists will receive a $2,500 cash prize, and each will have their work presented by Real Art Ways in a solo exhibition in 2019-20. Learn more about the program, chosen artists, and their upcoming exhibitions.
