OUR 13th YEAR OF
EXHIBITS, PUBLICATIONS, EDUCATION, & ARTIST RESIDENCY
will close on August 31st
Each year our Annual Fund contributions cover the cost of rent for both our facilities, including the Gallery, Drawing Center, Artist Residency studios, book storage, art storage, and offices!
Each subsequent season, an amount equivalent to 10% of all Annual Fund contributions will be dedicated to our
Drawing Center scholarship fund.
** URGENT MESSAGE **
We have conclusive evidence that suggests the 2016/17 American political drama has negatively impacted contributions to, and invovlement with, our programs. At this point, with only two weeks to go, we are at 64% of our needed total for this season's Annual Fund. We MUST make up the difference by August 31st. Of course we launch our next season's Fund this fall, but if we do not reach 100% for the current season, we'll be starting in the hole.
Without this community support Manifest would not exist.
SUPPORT MANIFEST TODAY!
Manifest is a member & donor supported 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
Every year our donors contribute about 10% of Manifest's operating costs, making what we do possible! This may seem like a small percentage, but it covers our entire facility rent for all Manifest offices, galleries, artist residency studios, and our Drawing Center studios!
This season continues an additional impact of membership. Every year 10% of each season's Annual Fund contributions are designated for two scholarship funds for Drawing Center programs—a merit scholarship for high school students, and a 'bridge fund' to support the transition of emerging artists from academia into a career in the arts through study and professional development in the artist-culture at the Manifest Drawing Center. So, not only does community support sustain our essential facilities, without which we could not do what we do, it also empowers Manifest's support of individual artists at a formative stage in their development.

(requires a paypal account)
a community-minded 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization, founded
upon ideals formed both in academic pursuit and a commitment to quality
urban living, Manifest relies heavily on private donations to cover
operating costs. Since 2004 the Manifest board of directors has taken serious measures
to insure that Manifest is a low-cost/maximum benefit presence
in East Walnut
Hills and Greater Cincinnati, and a progressive influence on the
arts in our region and around the world. Our goal is to provide a context for
the study and experience of excellent visual art,
otherwise necessary in a commercial art-dealing gallery or larger organization. Through its rich programming Manifest brings the world to Cincinnati, and represents Cincinnati to the world, one work of art at a time.
