As the days grow shorter, we reflect on the year gone by and the year to come. We have achieved great successes in 2019 and are profoundly grateful for your support. We increased the number of free days at the Museum, expanded our Art4Kids and Youth+Art programs, and presented bilingual exhibitions that addressed everything from immigration and climate change to kinetic art and cannabis. With record-breaking attendance in 2018 and 2019, you have shown us that we are well on our way to fulfilling our mission to engage and inspire our diverse community with art and history exhibitions and programs that are inclusive, educational, and relevant. But we are not done yet!
Last year, we launched our Re:Imagine! Plan, a two-year strategy focused on capacity building, program expansion, and physical improvements to the Museum’s galleries and grounds. Our overarching goal is to create a memorable and meaningful experience for all who visit our museum. With the support of our community, we have raised over $350,000 and achieved many of our expansion and improvement goals.
Please support our efforts to reimagine our future by making a tax-deductible contribution to the Museum of Sonoma County’s annual fund. With your support, we will collect and preserve the art and history of Sonoma County to engage and inspire visitors for years to come.
