The Decorative Arts Society

Welcome! The Decorative Arts Society (DARTS) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit membership group committed to improving the lives of women and children in Orange County, CA by investing in organizations and programs that help and empower them to achieve their potential as responsible contributing members of our community.

Our members appreciate design and decoration and are interested in learning about current trends as well as historic perspective. For its membership and guests, DARTS sponsors an annual lecture series on the decorative arts featuring experts in the fields of interior design, architecture, landscape design and other decorative arts.

Membership dues, individual and corporate sponsorship and underwriting of the lecture series allows DARTS to fund an annual grant program that puts much needed monies back into our community. To date DARTS has awarded nearly $2 MILLION to needy organizations serving Orange County.
