We are often asked, “Why is art important?” Just like language is a natural behavior of expressing oneself, so is art. When children are young, they draw to express themselves. They try to draw something creative that reflects their thought process.
For 50 years, from Norman Rockwell to Legos, the Tyler Museum of Art has presented our community with great exhibitions that help us understand people, places, periods of history, and issues with which we may otherwise be unfamiliar. They comfort us in grief and energize us in celebration. Tyler is blessed with a multitude of worthwhile nonprofit organizations, and we are all asking for your help this season. We hope you will consider the important educational impact of the Museum and make us a priority as you make your giving decisions during our Annual Fund campaign from October until January.
To show our gratitude, we are offering the opportunity for you to win a special event here at the Museum. For each gift of $500 to this year’s Annual Fund, you will receive one entry in a drawing to a special lunch for ten guests and a private tour of our Norman Rockwell exhibition opening on Dec 19, 2021, through Mar 13, 2022. We will hold the drawing in early January.
