December 2016
WHAT'S HAPPENING
Kimball Art Center inspires and connects through art. 
Dear Valued Members & Supporters, 
What a year 2016 has been for the Kimball Art Center! We have settled into our new home, serving over 85,000 people through our art classes, education programs, exhibitions and events. We hosted a successful Gala, featuring The Way of the Rain, we brought the community together for ARToberFest and we held the 47th Annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival. We are proud of our accomplishments in 2016 and excited to see what 2017 will bring. 
I want to extend a special thank you to everyone who donated during Live PC Give PC! It was incredible to see the enthusiasm of the community and the dedication to the arts. Thanks to your donations, we blew past our own goal and raised $38,882 in just 24 hours. In all, donors gave $1,736,306 supporting over 100 Park City nonprofits. Wow! 
As the giving season continues, I ask that you keep the Kimball in mind when making year-end gifts. Every dollar that you give helps bring art to the community. 
I wish to express our deepest gratitude for all you do to make Park City an incredible community to live, work and raise our children in.
