“Cultivating a Creative Community”
Cultivating a creative community using art advocacy as a platform to safely express, educate, empower and engage the Coachella Valley.
The Coachella Valley Art Scene started as a blog in 2008. After five years of internet and events, The CVAS opened the doors to their first art gallery for a more tangible experience. The gallery served as a creative hub for the community. In January of 2015, The Coachella Valley Art Scene officially became a 501c3 NonProfit Organization.
Celebrate. Cultivate. Educate.
Founder + Executive Director, Sarah Scheideman
“The Coachella Valley Art Scene started as a blog in 2008 after I graduated from UC Riverside (BA in Film & Visual Culture) and returned to the desert. When I came back I was looking for information on local art and music events to attend and I couldn’t find anything. It was then that I became acutely aware of this burgeoning art community and the need to organize in order for it to thrive. With my background and power of the internet, I launched a platform for artists and art enthusiasts via The Coachella Valley Art Scene. With a growing audience over the last eight years, the ‘Scene’ has emerged into something beautiful and bigger than myself.” – Sarah Scheideman via CV Weekly
