DIVA strengthens connections, shares knowledge, and builds community through the visual arts. Welcome to our campaign to Sharpen our Vision!
Founded in Eugene, OR in late 2003, the Downtown Initiative for the Visual Arts (DIVA), a 501(c)3 nonprofit visual arts organization, sparked an interest in the visual arts among members of the downtown community. Over the past 10 years, DIVA has displayed the work of over 900 artists, screened hundreds of films, and offered numerous classes ranging from screenwriting to figure drawing.
The DIVA Gallery produces several community art exhibitions throughout the year, and oversees four film-related projects with: A weekly"Behind the Lens" Seminar, The "Teen Video Challenge," "The Shaggy Dog Project," and The "OpenLens Film Festival."
The Downtown Initiative for the Visual Arts (DIVA) has been offered an opportunity to secure a wonderful space in downtown Eugene!! A space that would allow exhibitions, workshops, film viewing, and the Aria Gift Gallery.
We have an opportunity to move quickly, but we need your help now. In order to balance our annual budget, we ask for your financial support in this month of March.

And now, we get to do a DIVA makeover!, which would increase the versatility and efficiency of the DIVA Gallery AND the ability to jury film submissions by three of our four FILM programs.
Give $25 minimum and received two tickets to our annual OpenLens Winter Short Film Festival in February, at the UO Baker Center. See details at http://openlens.proscenia.net
