Art Alliance is a volunteer organization whose members plan, support and participate in activities that benefit the Riverside Art Museum and contribute to its operating budget.
Coming in the Fall of 2014, the Art Alliance will be presenting their second Speaker Series, "Look Who's Talking, Too."
We will be hosting speakers in the literary, performing, graphic and culinary arts. All guest speakers are local personalities who have had an impact far beyond the Inland Empire.

Riverside Art Market-Great day and great fun!
Saturday April 26, 2014
This one-day event was held in front of the Riverside Main Library where artists set out their work for the public to see and purchase. Please see below for a list of the artists present. There was also a huge interest from the community in our craft booths for children where kids of all ages could be seen making Lanterns, Beaded Jewelry or Spring Baskets, just to name a few. Food vendors and a face painter added to the fun of the day.
This was the first Art Market for Art Alliance and we hope to repeat this event in the future to help artists get their artwork shown (and bought) by the public. Our "Joyful RAM" helped the Art Alliance, a fundraising arm of the Riverside Art Museum, present this event to raise monies to support the Riverside Art Museum and their educational programs.
