2017 Annual Donor Campaign

The first year of our amazing new Gallery has been a huge success and we thank all of you who shared our dream and made the expansion project come true. Now you can support our Gallery Foundation by contributing to our Annual Donor Campaign. Your donations help with our day-to-day operating expenses, as well as maintain and upgrade our important Permanent Collection, and support all the many exciting programs and exhibits that we have planned for 2017.

These events bring people to the Gallery from all over the country and our facility has become an important venue for the local community... and you get to choose how your dollars are spent!

Why Support the Gallery’s Donor Campaign?

• We are open all year FREE to the public. All funds raised help us keep our admission free and our exhibits accessible to all.
• We had a 50% increase in visitors in 2016 and the numbers are growing. When people visit the Gallery they also shop, dine and stay locally, providing a boost to the local economy.
• We are a 501(c)(3) organization, so contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.
• We are the Past, Present, and Future of Indiana art, with first rate exhibit space, storage and the Art Education Studio, serving current artists and students. The Gallery also routinely exhibits the work of our important early Hoosier Masters, preserving and promoting a proud legacy for future generations.
