VoCA Salons offer unique opportunities for our donors and supporters to engage with artists and arts professionals to learn about their work and delve into the local art scene. Four to six times a year, we host Salons in different cities, and each is crafted to give the participants a unique view of contemporary art in the given city.

For those individuals that make donations of $500 or more, you will receive invites to our VoCA Salons held all over the country. VoCA Salon invitations are also offered as a benefit of corporate support. If you would like to learn more about becoming an individual or corporate supporter, please reach out to Lauren Shadford at
