NOW MORE THAN EVER, ARTISTS ARE A CRITICAL AND VIBRANT PART OF SOCIETY.

Long-time Artist in Residence Marcus Kuiland-Nazario says it best:

"When I arrived on Cinco De Mayo in 1989 as a new, young artist, American society and culture were at a critical juncture. 18th Street was a wild hub of social activism of every stripe and color. Throughout my career, I’ve seen that artists are always at the forefront of social change and justice–and those at 18th Street are no exception, with many joining the on-going fight for the right to rule our bodies, homes, and minds. 

As 18th Street enters its 35th year, I am proud to say that this arts community has been central to my life and the issues I care about as an artist. That the world comes to 18th Street is quite a remarkable thing that needs to continue to happen, grow, and expand."
Marcus is just one of the artists that have been impacted during our 35-year history - and your support ensures we can continue this work for at least another 35.

Thanks to the generosity of 18th Street Board Members Ted Schwab and Andrew Beath, donations made by December 31 will be matched 100%, up to a total of $9,000.
