The Tyler Museum of Art is pleased to announce that it has recently received a number of generous gifts from anonymous supporters including funds to create a new staff position.
A significant restricted gift from an anonymous donor will provide funds to specifically underwrite an executive-level Business Manager position at the Tyler Museum of Art.
The Museum has also received a couple of major gifts from other anonymous supporters to help offset the loss of some traditional funding. These funds will be used to carry out daily operations, educational programs and provide world-class exhibitions.
“The Board is gratified to receive such wonderful support from the local community and our patrons,” said Verna Hall, President of the Board of Trustees. “This support is greatly appreciated at the present time as we are actively engaged in the search for a new Executive Director.”
The Tyler Museum of Art exists as an educational and cultural center to enrich the lives of East Texas citizens and visitors through the collection, preservation, study, exhibition, interpretation, and celebration of the visual arts. The Museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums and is located at 1300 S. Mahon Ave., adjacent to the Tyler Junior College campus off East Fifth Street.
