Who owns SDVAN?A committee organized this project purely
as a not for profit venture. Non of the committee members received payment
of any kind and have no financial interest in SDVAN. They are all glad
to volunteer theirb services and skills. This project was a way for many
groups who were not working together to come together for the mutual benefit
of the Visual Arts Community. It is our hope that this project will be
self sustaining from donations and any monies raised will go to

Who is the committee? The original
ad hoc committee came from the grass roots of the arts organizations in
San Diego. It consisted of Sandra Chanis (Oceanside Museum of Art), Daniel
Foster (SDAI), Patricia Frischer (COVA, SD Artist Guild, OMA AA and coordintor
of SDVAN), Elfred Lee (SD Artist Guild and Portrait Society), Ann Berchtold
of SanDiegoArtist.com, Jane La Fazio (San Diego Watercolor Society). We
are now expanding to include as many members from different visual arts
organizations as possible. Laurie Brindle (North County Times) Stephen
Churchill (La Jolla Art Association), Dennis Batt (SD Visual Arts Guild,
COFAC) are new members of the committee. We welcome members from any area
of the directory listings.
else is on the site besides the directory? We have two
directories, one for art resources and a special directory just for Artists. Besides the directory and the events
calendar, we have an educational feature for collectors
called the SmART Collector. We also have
Picked Raw Feature
for each months events, a RAW gossip column with
dialogues about the previous months activities. Our monthly message is posted
at the end of each month for the following month. You can see an entire
list of everythig on the site on the Site Map
page. We have planned the site to have a holistic vision that grows with
the needs of the visual arts community.
Where does the money you raise go? All money raises goes back into the web site. It is our hope someday to be able to pay an administrative staff to coordinate the day to day running of the site. It is only with the support of the Visual Arts community that SDVAN can grow to fulfill it's mission to improve the clarity, accuracy and sophistication of discourse about San Diego's artistic and cultural life.
