Major gifts of support have a significant impact on the Museum’s ability to present new exhibitions, offer the highest-quality of educational programming, and engage audiences in interactive experiences with art.   They enable the conservation of FAMSF’s collections, and inspire capital projects which support asset-building needs.  Major gifts come in many forms and can be made through cash contributions, gifts of appreciated securities, bequests and planned gifts, or in-kind gifts such as contributions of valuable art.

The Book and the Binding

Reva and David Logan Gallery of Illustrated Books
November 17, 2012March 24, 2013

It was not until the emergence of the artist book in the 20th century that book bindings—a book’s front and back covers and spine—came to be appreciated as more than merely protective or decorative. In the early 1900s, any deluxe artist book—with original print illustrations by a well-known artist, printed on fine papers, and issued unbound in limited quantity—fairly cried out for a creative binding.

Artful Animals, Part 1

November 17, 2012April 28, 2013

Since the dawn of time, human beings have been fascinated with the animal world. Depictions of animals are some of the earliest known artistic efforts, dating back to the Paleolithic Era. And this interest has never abated. From sustenance to companionship, animals play a variety of roles in our lives and inspire a range of emotions—fear, love, awe—as well as a host of symbolic associations.
