Da Vinci Art Alliance, South Philly Standby, Needs You Now


The Da Vinci Art Alliance is in financial distress and needs help staying afloat, according to co-directors Samantha Connors and Bryant Girsch. “As many organizations post-COVID-19 lockdown, we’re struggling financially,” they announced via press release.

The Alliance dates back to 1931, when 16 Italian immigrant artists and collectors founded the organization at a time when immigrants were barred from other arts institutions.

Today the Alliance runs a gallery at 704 Catharine Street in South Philadelphia, as well as an artist membership program and a residency program for underserved artists.

The Alliance has shared a number of ways people can support the organization, including making a one-time or monthly recurring donation, or buying some artwork. Over here at Grid, we were intrigued by the first issue of Meditations on Sustainability. We’ll be ordering a copy now.
