2019 Annual Fund

This summer and fall, we welcomed an unprecedented number of visitors to see our special exhibition, Homer at the Beach: A Marine Painter's Journey, 1869-1880. As we look ahead to our 150th anniversary, we are planning more stellar exhibitions that will focus on the region's important place in American art and history, and our new campus at the gateway to Gloucester will open new doors in June 2020 to our community.
Your support is vital to the Cape Ann Museum. So that we may continue with our work, please consider making a donation. Here are some of the ways you can add to the CAM story:
  • $50 pays for art supplies enjoyed by ten families visiting the CAM Activity Center.
  • $100 pays for the rights to use an image in an exhibition catalogue or brochure.
  • $250 pays for a group of 8 senior citizens to visit the Museum for a CAM Connections tour.
  • $500 pays for one class of Pathways students to participate in the Museum’s Young at Art for Head Start program annually. In 2019 we served 9 classes, and we would like to double this number in 2020.
  • $1,000 pays for a nationally acclaimed scholar to speak about the global influence of Cape Ann artists.
  • $2,500 pays for producing an exhibit guide, such as the Sargent Murray brochure, available to all visitors.
  • $5,000 pays for the conservation and preservation of a historical wall map of Cape Ann.
It takes gifts of all sizes to mount an exhibit like Homer at the Beach, cover utility expenses, hire exceptional staff, and keep our doors open to the community throughout the year. You can help write the next chapter in the Cape Ann Museum’s 150-year story by making a generous gift to the Dotty Brown Annual Fund today. Thank you.
Or call the Development Office at (978)283-0455 x18. Thank you!
