The Ali Youssefi Project was created in memory of Ali by his family. Ali Youssefi was a humanitarian and deep lover of art. He was dedicated to harnessing the power of a community through its people, and this project aims to bridge his passions with his philanthropic spirit. We are humbled to honor Ali and the incredible work of his life in this way. Ali Youssefi was a proud Sacramentan who loved giving back to his city and supporting others in their success. The Ali Youssefi Project honors him by providing people with an opportunity to participate in community and dedicate themselves to their passion. The purpose of the Ali Youssefi Artist in Residency is to give meaningful support to artists and creatives. This project aims to nurture artists from a diverse range of backgrounds and uplift the work of all artists, with a particular focus on underrepresented perspectives and voices.
We are located in Sacramento, California. Residents spend time at both the Warehouse Artist Lofts and Verge Center for the Arts. WAL is a mixed-use, transit-oriented community for Sacramento-area artists. Located in the Historic R Street district, WAL is proximate to many art-related businesses and galleries, including the WAL Residency artist studio at Verge Center for the Arts. Verge Center for the Arts is the leading cultural institution in the Sacramento region for contemporary art and ideas. Their mission is to extend the dialogue about contemporary art to the central valley.
