BAM Annual Appeal

How do you begin your day?  Each morning when I walk into the Museum, I encounter the dark, quiet space with anticipation for what lies ahead.  I am greeted by the still forms of sculptures and the outlines of two-dimensional artworks on the walls.  As I make my way, I imagine the visitors who will arrive and remember the faces and voices from the day before – children expressing excitement and curiosity, and adults discussing connections to one another and the works of art.  For me, art is brought to life every day as the rooms in the Museum are illuminated, one-by-one.  I savor the moment and seize the opportunity to reflect on the art that surrounds me and to imagine the ways it will touch people today.  This daily ritual fills me with gratitude for all our community does to support BAM.

Every time you visit, make a donation, renew your membership, volunteer, or participate in collaborative projects, you help us bring art to life.  Your support is helping to engage and inspire our community with visual arts experiences.  I am asking you to help advance our educational mission for the community by contributing to our Annual Fund today.

The exhibitions we present, the events we hold, our educational programs, are all made possible by your gifts.  Your gift to our Annual Fund is extremely important because it offers immediate resources that are directed to current needs and opportunities at the Museum. 

We are honored to be a vital partner in the educational, creative, and cultural life of our community by providing opportunities for exceptional visual arts experiences.  Thank you for believing in our mission and in the importance of the visual arts to humanity.  Please be among those who bring art to life at BAM by making a donation today.
