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
service and improve the web site.

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.

What 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.
