The support of our Friends allows us to acquire objects for the permanent collection, host special programs and traveling exhibitions, and offer children’s workshops. By being a Friend of the Daura Museum, you invest in our mission to support the arts at the University of Lynchburg.
Join the Friends of the Daura Museum of Art!
We are always touched by the way visitors to the Museum respond to our exhibitions and programs. But in order to continue our level of excellence in exhibitions, expand our collections, and improve our educational programs, we need the constant and generous support of Friends like you. Your support makes a tremendous difference every day at the Daura Museum.
Exhibition expenses, including loan fees, insurance and transportation, are greater than ever, and special event and program costs are constantly mounting. By joining the Friends of the Daura Museum, you have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping us achieve our goal of providing great exhibitions and programs for all our constituents – students, alumni, the residents of Central Virginia – and keeping the vitality of the arts in Lynchburg and beyond. Contributions of all sizes help us better serve our constituents.
More Ways to Help
We value your generous support and continued engagement and suggest there are some more ways you can help us. If your employer makes matching gifts, contact your human resources director. To discuss facility rental or the donation of works of art or artifacts, contact the Director. And most importantly: bring your friends to exhibitions and events (and ask them to join the Friends); volunteer as a gallery attendant or docent for educational tours and programs; tell us about people who may want to donate art that fits within the parameters of our collections policy; introduce us to people you know in corporations and foundations, or who simply want to support the arts. And be a voice for the Daura Museum in your community.
