The Oklahoma City Museum of Art is proud to provide our community with an extraordinary museum experience. From our newly redesigned collection Chihuly Then and Now: The Collection at Twenty, to our immersive exhibition Kiarostami: Beyond the Frame, the Museum provides a wealth of opportunities for Oklahoma students, teachers, and families to encounter artworks not seen anywhere else.
Access to these exhibitions and the educational experiences that OKCMOA provides, either virtually or in-person, is a sought-after experience for Oklahoma educators and families. Over the past year, OKCMOA school and teacher programs served over 4,700 students and their teachers through in-person school tours and Virtual Field Trips. The Museum hosted over 5,400 visitors for our Free Family Discovery Weeks, providing free admission and gallery access, as well as daily art-making activities inspired by our exhibitions, The Perfect Shot: Walter Iooss Jr. and the Art of Sports Photography and Chihuly Then and Now. We were proud to welcome nearly 16,000 children and youth to the Museum over this past year to experience our galleries, learn from our educators, and participate in art-making activities, but we could not do it without the support that we receive from our donors.
Today, we can achieve more with your donation. A group of loyal supporters of the Museum have pledged to match every dollar donated—up to $100,000—by December 31, 2022. Can you help us meet this match?
Your tax-deductible gift to the Annual Fund provides unrestricted dollars for the Museum’s annual operating budget, ensuring that your donation has the greatest impact. Your gift will help us continue to welcome students, teachers, and families to explore our collection in-person and provide opportunities for our exhibitions to reach the farthest corners of our state. Every donation makes a difference, no matter the amount.
With your help, we will continue to achieve our mission of enriching lives through the visual arts.
