Produced by The Kabuki Drop

PICA donors recognise that a commitment to art and the cultural vibrancy of the city we live in is fundamental to the health of our community.
That is why each year they continue to support PICA to invest in local artists, to bring the most extraordinary contemporary artists to Perth audiences and why PICA values their long term and significant support.
Donors who have given over $10,000 to PICA since the inception of its Donor Program in 2009 are acknowledged as PICA ART PATRONS.
Long term gifts and pledges make the biggest impact.
