Sponsoring Performances and Engagement Programs

The Clarice engages artists whose programs have the power to move us and change the way we live in the world. Fees for our visiting artists represent a significant portion of The Clarice’s operating budget and it is only through the generosity of donors that we can continue to work with artists who deepen our community’s connection to the artistic traditions of the world and contemporary culture.
