But we cannot do it alone. We need volunteers and financial support to make this exciting and powerful event happen. As a Viewpoint supporter, we hope you will join us by helping with a donation on May 4th!
Our plans for event development In 2017 include working on the organizational aspects, program collaboration with museums and galleries, and general marketing outreach. At the time the Big Day of Giving launches, Viewpoint will have made its announcement and our web site will be up and running. Please take a look: photomonthsac.org.
To support this event, Viewpoint will be offering a special exhibition during April 2018, as well as coordinating a series of lectures, print critiques, and a photography contest with cash prizes and public display opportunities for students at the high school and college level. We will also act as the clearing house for disseminating information on the many month long activities that will become part of this celebration. This type of celebration required ample planning and funding so we would like to ask all our supporters to help with a donation on the Big Day of Giving so that we may continue the planning process in 2017.

'In 2017, Viewpoint will continue to expand its new program offerings, refine existing programs, and reach out further to its community of photographers and the general public. The new exhibit year planned for 2017 is exciting and features several well-known photographers who will bring their art to Sacramento and surrounding areas through Viewpoint's free gallery program. Viewpoint is the only independent and self-supporting photographic arts organization in the greater Sacramento region. As an educational institution, Viewpoint delivers workshops, lectures, field trips, and other programs to provide the photographic community and the general public with tools and information to help them understand, appreciate, and practice photography as an art form. Viewpoint's Education Program nurtures and encourages high school and college students of photography by offering student-only events at no charge. This program is designed to cultivate budding photographers and to supplement high school and college arts programs. Viewpoint is an inclusive organization. Photographers new and experienced, supporters of the arts, and collectors are welcomed in the organization.'
