The Art Association’s Napa Valley Scholarship Program 2020

The Art Association Napa Valley has been continuously operating an active organization of local artists for the past 73 years, with a current membership of over 150 artists.

AANV is a private, nonprofit arts organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for the Napa Valley by supporting arts and culture throughout the county. We provide funding, advocacy, marketing and exhibition opportunities for local artists. A portion of the member dues and a percentage of art sold contributes annually to the AANV Scholarship Fund, which benefits our local public high schools and college students who wish to pursue artistic careers.

This past year the AANV awarded $7,000 to six high school and one college student.
