Serving the Community in New Ways

For 30 years, the Museum has offered outstanding exhibitions and educational programs to the public. When the pandemic forced our temporary closure, we found new and innovative ways to connect with our community by introducing the Art with Heart initiative.

· Virtual art classes and tours for families, teachers, and students to enjoy from home

· Art therapist’s videos and livestreams for those with memory loss and on the Autism spectrum

· Live outdoor activities including yoga and the mindful sculpture experience

· Remote learning resources for parents and teachers

· Upcoming exhibitions featuring well-known and emerging artists


Help Keep the Museum’s Heart Beating!

During our four-month closure our revenue streams from admission, the store, facility rental and our major fundraising event were halted and now we find ourselves facing a financial challenge.

Your donation at this time would be all the more meaningful. It takes you and your generosity to keep the momentum going as we move forward with outstanding exhibitions, educational activities, therapeutic programs, virtual classes, and lectures.



Your donation will allow us to play an ever more important role in the community, continuing our mission of offering outstanding exhibitions, education programs and now expanded online and outdoor programming that provide solace and inspiration especially in these troubled times.
Can we count on you for your support?
Thank you!

2019 Annual Appeal Tops Six Figures

We sincerely appreciate the generous outpouring of support for our 2019 Annual Appeal from a broad range of art lovers, some of them old friends of the Museum and some newcomers. We raised approximately $110,000 from 198 donors, 66 of which were new donors to the museum. We are grateful to our anonymous donors for their generous $20,000 Challenge Grant which dramatically enhanced the results. In addition, we want to thank Angela Susan Anton for her efforts, chairing the appeal once again.

Annual Appeal gifts are essential to our ability to deliver exhibitions of substance, concerts, films, lectures, art classes for all ages and abilities, family programs, school field trips, artist talks and workshops, publications and so much more. Our heartfelt thanks to all our donors whose contributions help the Museum enrich the lives of over 200,000 people each year.
