The Art of Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion

The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is thoroughly enriched by the diversity of its visitors, board, staff, and volunteers. Diversity and inclusion are essential to the Art Center’s mission to nurture innovation and excellence in the visual and performing arts via exhibitions, performances, education, and community outreach and to sustain a community of performers, artists, and enthusiasts. Inspired by the knowledge that diversity fosters creativity, brings energy, and nurtures an inclusive community, the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center welcomes artists, members, and visitors regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or spiritual orientation, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, or mental or physical disability. Diversity, engagement, and belonging remain at the center of the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center’s values.
