What is my fee used for?
Duxbury Art Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and publicly-funded charitable organization operated by artists and art appreciators, for artists, with no reserve or endowment. All proceeds from entry fees fund project-related expenses. Not unlike paying a fee to enter a marathon race, this democratically enables our organization's projects to happen. For over a century Duxbury Art Association has earned a reputation for producing quality exhibits, and benefitting the artists involved, and the public, on its meager budget. Our board of trustees and small dedicated staff of volunteers work hard to make involvement with DAA projects well worth the effort and cost to do so.

Simply by participating in a DAA project or becoming a member you are helping this grass-roots organization do its work and achieve its mission.
