Draper Visual Arts Foundation was organized in 1992 for the purpose of preserving and caring for the Reid and Willda Beck Art Collection housed in Draper Elementary School. Many of these priceless pieces were in disrepair and needed refurbishing. The Foundation hired David Jolley, an Internationally recognized restoration artist, to clean and repair each of the paintings. The Foundation has since worked to make this collection more accessible to the community by producing a self-guided tour book and offering student appreciation classes.
In more recent years, the work of the Foundation has expanded to include sponsoring art classes for both children and adults and establishing a new art collection for the community. These foundation-owned pieces are exhibited at the Draper City hall and our local Elementary Schools. The Foundation also sponsors a high school scholarship program for outstanding senior arts students.
The Draper Visual Arts Foundation is non-profit and is funded through donations from individuals who are interested in furthering visual arts in the Draper Community. The Foundation also qualifies for some support from the Zoo, Arts and Parks (ZAP) tax.
