Dear DeSoto Arts Patron:

The DeSoto Arts Council (DAC) invites you to join us in endowing the arts in DeSoto Parish through a charitable donation. Your tax deductible donation (501-C-3) will help the DAC broaden art experiences which will enrich the lives of DeSoto Parish citizens.

The DAC is the only art gallery in DeSoto Parish featuring original art work by DeSoto Parish artists and artists in surrounding areas. It is a venue for artists to sell their works and for visitors to experience a multitude of art mediums.  The gallery offers art classes in various art mediums hosted by the DAC and taught by acclaimed professionals. The Student Art Wall is an area showcasing creative art produced by pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade students in DeSoto Parish schools on a monthly rotation.

With your help, we will continue our ongoing operation and expand the gallery’s goal of providing more of the best quality art experiences for the parish.

Your donation will benefit you in the following ways:

  • Your contribution to the DAC (501-C-3) is tax deductible.
  • All patrons and businesses will be listed in DAC promotional publications and on our website http://desoto-arts-council-of-la.org/
  • A $50 donation and over will have your name on a plaque on the recognition mural in the gallery and receive an annual membership.
  • Special invitations to upcoming gallery events

Checks may be made payable to the DeSoto Arts Council and mailed to P.O. 352, Grand Cane, LA 71031. Memorial and honorarium donations will be given appropriate acknowledgement.
