About The Foundation

La Quinta Arts Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization incorporated in 1982 whose mission is, “Promoting and Cultivating the Arts.” 

A city must be more than streets and buildings, cops and workers, ordinances and development. It must provide opportunity for positive participation and self-fulfillment of the individual, while contributing to the community.”
Fred Wolff, La Quinta’s first mayor & co-founder of La Quinta Arts Foundation
