Program Sponsorship

Holland has many worthy programs in need of sponsorship! Sponsorship helps Holland sustain these important programs, reach more young people in our community, pay artists and musicians, provide opportunities in a variety of arenas, and continue to operate and execute events and programs with both vision and quality. See below for great programs in need of wonderful sponsors! <3


YOUNG BLOOD – $1,000

 Young Blood is Holland’s bi-annual visual arts pop-up showcase featuring artists under the age of 21. Twice a year, students bring work ready-to-hang and work with Holland Project Gallery Committee members to install their work in the Holland Gallery for a one-night-only celebration of our community’s emerging artists. Traditionally, more than 60+ young artists ranging in age from 7 to 21 bring work to show, representing nearly every medium from painting to sculpture to design, illustration, mixed media and more. Young artists also are able to sell their work, network with other artists, and learn about gallery and exhibition practices. For the community, it’s a special treat to see the incredible talent of our region’s emerging creators!
