Need an art fix? We’ve got you! Whether you want to learn something new, create something great, or explore interesting art, keep those creative juices flowing and #BMAfromHome!
During these challenging times, the BMA is more dedicated than ever to connecting our communities to the experience, meaning, and joy of art. BMA from Home will empower visitors to Learn, Create, and Explore during the time that the Museum is closed to the public. Follow and interact with us here on our website and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
Art unifies communities. We need art and YOU more than ever.
As a non-profit organization, the Birmingham Museum of Art relies heavily on the generosity of its members, corporate partners, donors, and other income to fund our programs, outreach and staff. Last year, this support allowed us to welcome over one hundred thousand visitors including tens of thousands of children from all backgrounds.
Now, our community is facing the effects of an unprecedented health crisis, and the Museum has been significantly impacted. Our critical fundraiser, the Annual Museum Ball, has been postponed, and the 2020 season of Art On The Rocks has been canceled. The Museum has modified the upcoming budget, but we still anticipate a financial shortfall in critical areas including utilities and staff salaries.
By making a donation today, you help the BMA continue to provide a meaningful arts experience to our community. A gift enables us to carry out our commitment to sharing the power of art in the following ways:
- Supporting our staff as they continue to create virtual programs and access to our collection through #BMAfromHome
- Developing Culture Bridge, a digital resource created with educators and for educators to enhance the study of Asian culture through art
- Continue to plan your favorite programs and events our community for when we can safely reopen our doors
We look forward to the time where we may resume normal operations and continue to spark the creativity, imagination, and liveliness of Birmingham by connecting our community to the experience, meaning, and joy of art.
