Congratulations to the Davis Arts Center, the recipient of the Brooks Painting 2014 Charity Paint Give-Away! Of our three finalists, DAC received the most votes and Brooks will be donating up to $10,000 in painting services for their facility. It is our honor to be able to give back to the communities we work in through our Charity Paint.
Davis Arts Center is a gathering place for people of all ages to learn and experience the arts in an engaging community environment. They offer more than 300 classes in visual art, music, dance, literary and theater arts, martial arts and physical wellness. They present and host a variety of theater and music performances each year, including their annual Classical Guitar Series, as well as interactive family-friendly programs such as their annual Holiday Sale, Discovery Art and Junk 2 Genius.
The Arts Center, built in 1987, is a large facility that includes seven studio classrooms, a gallery, an indoor community space, as well as two stages for performances. Davis Arts Center has, as part of their strategic plan, recently rebranded and now have a new name and logo, along with a new website (davisartscenter .org). Their next steps are to improve their physical space, however they have a need for many costly upgrades and repairs, which will require their complete facilities budget. The Center, which is open nearly every day, is at the northeast corner of Davis Community Park and is highly visible – fresh paint on the building would not only benefit the Arts Center, but improve the entire corner.
Davis Arts Center is a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization governed by a Board of Directors. The majority of their funding comes from class registration fees and annual membership, which they keep low and affordable for patrons. Some additional funding comes from private donations, corporate and private foundations.
We are looking forward to this project and giving back to our community. Thank you to everyone who nominated and voted in this year's giveaway. Be thinking about who you will nominate for 2014!

If we had to compress who Jeremy is and what he does into a one-word description, it would be “passionate.” A lifelong California native, he began Brooks Painting at only 24 years old, fueled by a passion for his community, painting, and all the possibilities of what might be ahead.
