Our non-profit client of the week is undergoing exciting changes! The Asheville Art Museum, established by local artists in 1948, is the third oldest art museum in the entire state of North Carolina. Their mission is to inspire and enlighten individuals through dynamic experiences in American art of the 20thand 21stcenturies.
The Asheville Art Museum presents an extensive array of engaging exhibitions throughout the year featuring American art of the 20th and 21st centuries. Their innovative programs include concerts, film screenings and guided tours, summer art camp, and more.
In 2017-2018, the Museum served 366,016 individuals through onsite and offsite educational exhibitions. The Museum is currently undergoing the final phases of a major renovation project and expansion right in the heart of downtown Asheville. This new building, opening in September 2019, will have fresh approaches, additions to the Collection, educational programs, and so much more to extend this organization across the mountain region.
The main goal of the museum is to transform lives through art as well as provide lifelong opportunities for education. You can find out more about how to support the the Museum’s capital campaign here!
