You can make a difference

By Dr. Paul S. D'Ambrosio, President and CEO

Edward Hopper once said, “All I want to do is paint light on a side of building.” Sounds simple, right? But his ability to capture light is transformative. Ugly freight cars are beautiful; the working dock yard dynamic.

That is the power of art. It makes you think about things in different ways. It tells a story that brings a community together and speaks uniquely to the individual. If you value having that resource here in your community, then please make a donation today to support the Fenimore Art Museum.

Simply put, your investment in us will make a difference. $20 could pay for the fixtures to hang your favorite painting. $50 would underwrite planting our Three Sisters Garden in Otsego: A Meeting Place. With $100, we can update the Art Carts, allowing visitors to touch the materials used to create the art they see. $250 pays for supplies to paint one gallery wall for our upcoming American Impressionism: Paintings of Light and Life exhibition. $500 covers the cost of printing all the informational labels for next year’s exhibition Artist and Visionary: William Matthew Prior Revealed.

This just skims the surface of how your dollars will make a concrete and visible difference. We are working hard to keep the same level of excellence you have come to expect. But to continue, we need your help. We depend on the financial support of friends like you. We value your involvement in our museum. Thank you. But by doing a little bit more, by making a donation, you will make a difference today.

We offer three easy, safe, and convenient avenues for you to make a donation.
