Support the Museum

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.

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

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.
