The Daura Gallery seeks to serve University of Lynchburg and the community beyond by providing opportunities for learning, enjoyment, and personal growth, and, as such, to deepen our understanding of human experience and cultural diversity. To do this, we need your support by becoming a charter affiliate of the Friends of the Daura Gallery. We are always touched by the way visitors to the Gallery 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 will make a tremendous difference every day at the Daura Gallery.
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 Gallery, you will 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 will help us better serve our constituents and we have categories for every level of support.
