We are writing to let you know what an especially great time it is right now to make a donation to the Carl Cherry Center. If you’ve made a donation in the past, we hope you’ll continue this year. If you’ve never been a supporter of the Cherry Center, we welcome you.
Each year, we present programs, exhibits, plays, workshops and readings that have something valuable to reveal, compelling us to look up from our lives. The Carl Cherry Center offers you a truly unique experience every time you visit. With a permanent collection by Jeanne D‘Orge, stellar special exhibitions, award-winning programs, critically-acclaimed theater and music, you’ll always see, feel, and learn some-thing brand new.
We need institutions like the Cherry Center because of the encouragement that the arts are good for our spiritual health even if we only set foot in the Cherry once a year. The Carl Cherry Center for the Arts is an independent non-profit arts center committed to discovering outstanding new artists, writers and performers from all over the state and presenting programs and exhibits in ways that celebrate their worth and extend our reach. As a small arts organization, we rely on the help of our members and donors to pursue ambitious literary and arts projects—projects that take risks, that support ideas beyond the mainstream marketplace, and that nurture emerging work.
So today, whether you are a sustaining member or thinking of becoming one—do something ingenious: write a check that champions the expression of the human spirit. Your one-time – or recurring donation – of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more will help the Cherry Center continue its mission of presenting quality and diverse artistic, educational, and cultural programs in Monterey County.
