Art Festival Sponsors

Businesses and Patrons of the Arts ~ Support the Arts and Our Community!

Wickford Art Association would like to invite you to support the arts by becoming a sponsor of the 56th Wickford Art Festival! The Wickford Art Association (WAA) is a 501c3 non-profit organization of more than 400 artists and individuals who are passionate about fine art. Since 1962, WAA has been the sole producer of the Wickford Art Festival. This annual event supports the WAA’s Annual Scholarship Program which awards cash scholarships to three talented RI public high school seniors furthering their studies in art as well as benefiting WAA programs and exhibits. The Festival receives enthusiastic support from area businesses, arts organizations, civic groups, individuals and the Town of North Kingstown.

We have many ways to support your business which in turn will support our arts programs and the Scholarship Program. Each year, we print and distribute 4,000 festival programs during the festival. We have numerous levels of support starting at a very affordable donation of $50.

For 2018, we would like to welcome back BankNewport, Bank RI, Rhode Island State Council on the Arts and Fuller Art and Frame Gallery for their continued support of the arts. We would also like to thank Washington Trust for their sponsorship this year to the Wickford Art Festival.
