Material Concerns, a fundraiser of the Carolyn Campagna Kleefeld Contemporary Art Museum’s Advisory Board supports collection acquisitions. This three-part artist lecture series features important artists as they share insights behind their multidisciplinary works and practices. Doris Sung, Maren Hassinger, and Dyani White Hawk will help explore a primary concern of the museum—artists and art works that use material in innovative and imaginative ways. Series ticket holders will enjoy presentations in the artists’ own words via Zoom and also acquire passes to the unveiling event for the new and improved museum.
Ticket sales directly fund the acquisition of art by artists of difference for the museum’s permanent collection. Each ticket includes VIP access to the museum’s re-opening party in the Spring of 2022; supporters will receive two passes to the event and participate in the reveal of significant renovations and improvements from the museum’s capital expansion.
The ticket price is not tax deductible, but supporters are encouraged to make an additional tax-deductible gift to the museum’s endowment by clicking here.
