IMCA | Institute and Museum for CA Art
Together we will develop the next generation of artists and art enthusiasts.

The UCI Institute and Museum for California Art is committed to providing public outreach to underserved K-12 school children in the community. For the very first public exhibition, which will be hosted by the Claire Trevor School of the Arts, we plan to have 400 school children from underserved schools in Orange County experience the exhibition on campus.


Our goal is to raise $8,000 to sponsor those 400 school children - that’s only $20 for each child! Every gift will help pay for busing, instruction, art supplies, as well as a nutritious meal – many of these children will be coming from food insecure homes.


Your donation, of any size, will give more underserved school children to the opportunity to see and learn about California's contribution to the world of art and to global culture.


You can also help us reach our goal by sharing our campaign on your social networks and tagging us with #UCIMuseum and #UCIGivingDay. Tweet, post, livestream, and email to spread the word far and wide.


Anyone and everyone is invited to participate. When everybody gives, we all gain. And together we will develop the next generation of artists and art enthusiasts.
