Decatur, Alabama - Pet Adoption
Why should fundraising for our local art museum matter enough for an entire community to party hard for six whole weeks? “Art is for Every One” isn’t just a slogan here in Decatur. The Carnegie Visual Arts Center makes it a reality through programs that ensure art is accessible to all, hosting free workshops, events, and exhibitions for our city and the greater community, all while promoting creativity, family fun, and downtown revitalization. The Carnegie also gives back to our community in big ways, including sharing the proceeds with other community philanthropic partners such as CASA of North Alabama, Animal Friends Humane Society, the Decatur High School Developmental Program and many more.
