ArtsRevive is a membership-based, non-profit organization. Incorporated in 2003, ArtsRevive has grown in membership and in the type and number of opportunities it has presented to the community. When community members, governmental leaders, artists and designers work together it increases the vibrancy and diversity in a place. ArtsRevive believes that the arts offer an entry to economic and community redevelopment and can spur creative place-making in Selma and Dallas County.
Founded in 1968, the Alabama Visual Arts Network is a 501c3 nonprofit organization working to cultivate understanding, awareness and appreciation of visual art and the role it plays in the economic vitality and quality of life of every Alabamian, and as an important cultural and community resource.
