Help build Verge: Sacramento arts nonprofit turns to crowdfunding

Art studio at Verge Center for The Arts

One of Sacramento’s funkiest and most innovative art galleries is prepping for a relaunch and could use your help.

The Verge Center for the Arts has started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to help pay for their first year of exhibition programing in their space at 625 S Street in downtown Sacramento. The gallery has been in the warehouse since 2010, but it bought the building on Aug. 23, and has begun six months of construction before a planned reopening next spring.

The funds raised will also go to support Verge’s art classes, lectures, events and artists studios.

Here’s the campaign video:

Campaign contributors can become members starting at the $50 level and get perks such as admissions to members-only events – see the Indiegogo page for more details.

Verge has been open since 2009 and is a registered nonprofit. The gallery, owned by Jesse Powell, is generally considered to be one of the leaders of contemporary art in Sacramento.
