In 2007, our group first came together through the realization that there was a dire need for creativity and community engagement in Downey. Early on, we knew that creativity could be the spark that a community needed to begin its revitalization. We started by organizing pop-art shows in different businesses throughout what is now commonly referred to as, “Downtown Downey.” Since then, our organization has accomplished a great deal. One of our most recognizable accomplishments is the creation and building of Stay Gallery on Downey Avenue in the heart of Downey.

Founded in 2012 through a partnership with the City of Downey and funded by local businesses and individuals, Stay Gallery created a cultural hub for our community. During these last 5 years, we have hosted hundreds of art and music shows, developed engaging youth programs (Stay Young Initiative), and solidified “Stay” as creative space for our community to enjoy.

Our mission is to civically engage our community through art, culture, and creativity. However, we cannot do this alone. In order to preserve and cultivate high-quality art programming while remaining a public art gallery, we need the support from local individuals, local businesses, and corporate sponsorships. By contributing to Stay Gallery, you will ensure that our community continues to have a public art gallery for many generations to come. Stay Gallery depends on your help to continue to do what we do.

Please help us Stay! Sincerely,
Downey Art Vibe
