It takes you... to help us create exhibitions of substance, present outstanding public programming, offer over 40 fine arts classes in the newly opened Manes Center, engage 15,000 students and their teachers through school group tours and teacher workshops, and expand access to the arts for individuals with autism, memory loss and other special needs.

It takes you… and your generosity. We depend on you and our community of supporters who donate to our Annual Appeal. By making a gift to our Annual Appeal, you are supporting the day-to-day activities that push our mission forward: to bring the joy of art to everyone.

Stephen and Sharon Cuchel Renew Support of the Museum’s Annual Appeal with a $50,000 Challenge Grant

"As longtime members of the Museum's family, we are happy to lend our support and to challenge others to do so as well."


We are pleased to announce the return of a $50,000 Challenge Grant from Board member Sharon Cuchel and her husband Dr. Steven Cuchel. Dr. and Mrs. Cuchel, loyal supporters of the Museum, hope for every dollar they contribute, another dollar will be raised. This is the fifth year they have given so generously. Please help us double their $50,000 donation. All donations received by December 31 will help us meet the Cuchel’s generous challenge.
