Stay is an arts-focused 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a creative space for our community. Located in the heart of Downtown Downey, we offer a wide variety of exhibits, events, workshops and arts enrichment programs that aim to inspire creativity.
To guide every individual towards the discovery and utilization of their creative potential through the arts.
We envision a world where every individual uses their creativity to effectively communicate, collaborate, critically think, and create solutions for the problems our world faces today.
Creativity resides within all of us. We believe that art is the tool that helps us unlock its full potential.
Art allows us to communicate ideas, thoughts and emotions that words cannot, whether it be through a painting, a photograph, a performance or something else. It provides an outlet for personal expression and creates a bridge from our internal imagination to the external world.
What can art do for you?
How is Stay funded?
Stay is funded by the community through tax-deductible donations, as well as sponsorships for our programs, exhibits, events and workshops. The continuation of our organization and program offerings directly depends on you. We need your support to survive, and thrive!
