Organizational Memberships


Accomplishing CIVA’s mission requires the active participation of each member. Since half of CIVA’s funding comes directly from CIVA individual, organizational, and institutional memberships, a growing member base increases our capacity to serve the art and faith movement. Join CIVA or renew your membership at the level that best suits you, and enjoy the benefits—tangible and intangible—of belonging to the CIVA community.

CIVA Organizational Memberships—available to galleries, museums, churches, and arts ministries, organizations, and publishers—connect you to like-minded professionals and organizations. Benefits of membership include:

  • A web page dedicated to your organization on the CIVA website with links to your organization’s homepage
  • Inclusion in the online CIVA Network
  • Inclusion in the biennial CIVA Sourcebook
  • Two copies of each issue of SEEN Journal, CIVA’s award-winning semi-annual publication

  • Discounted advertising in CIVA publications
  • Promotion of your organization’s arts-related exhibitions, lectures, awards, and publications on the CIVA website

Here’s what some CIVA Institutional members are saying.

Concordia University Wisconsin“The diversity of CIVA membership and the quality of the artwork are refreshing and inspiring.”
– Gaylund Stone, Art Department Chair, Concordia University




Gordon College art faculty and student“For years I’ve been “renting” color reproduction space in the CIVA Sourcebook, often a full page image. Mostly this began as a means of supporting CIVA’s mission, but I discovered that this directory was being consulted by curators, gallerists, and universities seeking artist-exhibitor-speakers. I’ve derived many exhibits and deep encouragement coming from being a full participant in CIVA.”
– Bruce Herman, Artist and Professor


MVNU“CIVA has been a valuable resource for MVNU as faculty have attended the conference. We have hosted traveling CIVA art exhibitions in our Schnormeier Gallery in the Buchwald Art Center of MVNU campus.”
– John Donnelly, MVNU Art and Design Department Chair
