Museo de Arte Acarigua-Araure

The upcoming year is an important one, as we will celebrate our foundation’s 30th anniversary on June 13th, 2020.
The pages of the new year are blank and we are eager to write them with meaningful programs that have a high cultural and social impact.
With your contributions, we will continue our mission of directly supporting artists and organizations in Venezuela and The United States of America as well as the exciting development of VAEA New Rochelle Arts Center.
Happy New Year from VAEA!
