Roots to Rise is the theme for SDAI’s first-ever, artist-created, permanent donor recognition installation, designed to recognize individuals, businesses and foundations who invest in SDAI’s success and the success of contemporary artists in our region.

Roots to Rise will represent a community of donors, supporters and partners who ensure SDAI is here to serve our region’s artists and audiences for generations to come.

Contributors of $500 and higher in 2019 will be recognized on the Roots to Rise donor wall in perpetuity.

Please make your mark in the Roots to Rise movement as an Individual Underwriter or Corporate Partner. Your gift of $500 or more comes with the option to designate your support to a specific exhibition or program.

There are many ways for you or your organization to join our movement to support contemporary art in Southern California and Northern Baja and increase art access for all. Here's an overview of what our members and donors helped SDAI achieve in 2017-2018:
