  • ArtsWatch is Oregon’s most comprehensive arts publication.
  • Reach nearly 50,000 viewers every month, per Google analytics.
  • Connect directly with arts patrons.


ArtsWatch is proud to support our cultural community in its time of need and offer a year of free advertising for all qualified non-profit arts organizations in Oregon and Southwest Washington. This essential program is funded by generous donations to ArtsWatch’s Full Circle Fund. Thank you to donors for making this possible!

How to Qualify

  • Organizations must be not-for-profit.
  • Arts and culture must be a central part of the mission.
  • Headquarters and regular programming must be in Oregon or Southwest Washington.


  • Ads can run for 12 months from July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021.
  • Sidebar ads should be 300x250p in jpg format.
  • Content and links can be anything that suits your marketing needs – events, fund-raisers, donations, season announcements, brand identification to keep up your visibility.
  • Ads can be switched out at any time.
  • Ads will run on the side of the website at ORARTSWATCH.ORG and in the weekly e-newsletter.
  • ArtsWatch will have an experienced designer create ads for free for organizations that do not have the resources.
  • Email ads to Laura Grimes at
  • NOTE: If you had an existing advertising agreement with ArtsWatch that was disrupted by cancellations due to the pandemic, you will receive fair compensation with upgraded ads or an extended ad agreement in addition to the 12 months of free sidebar ads.


Organizations will acknowledge ArtsWatch on websites, e-blasts, programs, or promotional materials. Here are logos to download and use:


NOTE! The highest age group is 25-34, a key target audience for organizations looking to diversify.


Beyond numbers, demographics, and selling tickets, ArtsWatch provides necessary support for arts organizations and artists:

● High-quality cultural news and critical analysis you don’t find anywhere else.
● An opportunity to keep audiences engaged and educated.
● Marketing gold in quotes and links.
● Vital feedback.
● Validation for grants.


For organizations and companies not qualified for applying for Ads for All, paid advertising on ArtsWatch is still available. ALL sponsorship revenue through June 2021 will go toward ArtsWatch’s Full Circle Fund to provide free ads for all cultural nonprofits in Oregon and Southwest Washington for one year.

NOTE: Months don’t have to be consecutive, and run dates can be any 30 days that suit your marketing needs.
