Headlands Center for the Arts


If you’re like us, you value the arts. We believe that art—like science, technology, and medicine—requires research, early investment, and ongoing support. We believe artists are problem solvers, interpreters, tone setters, and innovators, and we believe that a well-supported arts sector is critical to healthy, vibrant societies.

Your contribution to Headlands directly supports artists and the creation of bold, new, thought-provoking art. Your support also allows Headlands to invite the general public to experience creativity up close and in person through regular public programs and seasonal Open Houses.
