The Museum relies on the generosity of its friends and the community to meet the cost of providing programs and services, year-round, to thousands of residents and visitors.
With the Museum’s current major renovation and expansion project comes even greater opportunities to transform lives through art. We have reached 97% of our $24M+ campaign goal supporting our current building project, as well as working to build endowment funds for long-term sustainability. Now is the time to come together—every gift counts! Help us finish strong, so that we can bring a new 21st-century art museum to life for our community.
FALL AND SPRING APPEALS
We believe the arts make a difference in our lives and in our community. Art inspires, enriches, and enlivens us; it gives hope for the future and reminds us of our shared humanity. We know that you feel the same way. Your gift to the Fall and Spring Appeals are a gift to the community, allowing us to continue to provide great art and great experiences to the people of Western North Carolina and the many visitors to our region.
The Museum’s robust exhibition schedule brings art by nationally and locally renowned artists, both contemporary and historical, to thousands of visitors each year. Your gift makes these significant, exciting exhibitions possible. Contribute to upcoming exhibitions and, if you are inspired by a particular exhibition, list its title in the “Notes” section. Learn more about our upcoming exhibitions.
DONATIONS IN MEMORY / IN HONOR OF A LOVED ONE
Donations in honor or in the memory of someone you love is a wonderful way to support the arts by recognizing the role that the arts play in the lives of those we care about.
Supporting the Museum through the donation of services or products is an outstanding way to contribute to the success of all aspects of the Museum, including operations and facilities, programming, and special events.
