One of the greatest assets the Academy Art Museum enjoys is the generosity of the community it serves. Every year residents and visitors support the Museum, providing funds that allow us to reach thousands of school children, offer quality studio instruction to adults, and present high quality exhibitions and programs.
The Museum is fortunate to receive support from many sources. Annual grants from the Maryland State Arts Council and the Talbot County Arts Council provide general operating support. Charitable foundations and businesses provide funds for specific programs and projects and help the Museum meet its daily expenses. Thanks to a group of visionary donors the Museum is assured income from our endowment. These sources complement critically important support from the many individual donors to our Annual Fund.
We are extraordinarily proud that donors to the Annual Fund represent a cross section of our community. Some have a deep interest in our lectures and music programs, others love our exhibitions. A childís delight in a school program offered at the Museum has inspired parents and grandparents to make a gift. Afternoons lost in drawing a still life or making a ceramic bowl in one of our studios has sparked gifts from students in our many classes. What all these donors share is the belief that it is vitally important for our community to have a place to experience human creativity. If you share this belief we hope that you will contribute to the Academy Art Museumís Annual Fund.
With my sincere thanks,
Your contribution helps underwrite ArtREACH, a free program for students, K-12.
