2020 Annual Appeal

Despite the unpredictability of life in the months ahead, our commitment to sharing Dallin’s inspiring art and legacy with you remains constant. Your support allows us to make this work possible. We once again call upon your generous spirits during this season of charitable giving. Our goal for this year’s Annual Appeal is $18,000. Your tax-deductible donation will provide crucial support for the Museum’s daily operations and allow us to achieve the following strategic goals in 2021:

  • Reopen the Museum and maintain a safe and healthy environment for our visitors.
  • Engage in conversations with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) artists, curators, and cultural leaders on strategies for making the museum a more inclusive space
  • Expand virtual tour offerings to special interest groups.
  • Launch a new website that will showcase the museum’s collection to engage visitors and build visibility.
  • Develop a virtual unveiling for our newly acquired and restored Cyrus Dallin painting, Hall’s Letter.
