The programs of the Art Department and the Art Galleries are funded through the College’s annual budget and the generosity of friends who give a financial gift or make other contributions to the department.  You may make a cash or other financial donation via regular mail or online. To mail your contribution, please send a check in any amount to the Art Department. we will acknowledge your donation and send it to our Development Office for processing. If you’d rather contribute online, please click here and choose “other” for the Designation. Then, type in  “Fine Arts Advisory Board”.

Funds deposited to this account will contribute to the initiatives of our Advisory Board which is the steering committee for the department. This group was formed in the Spring 2011 following a focus group meeting to determine the viability of an Advisory Board who would advise our department and help chart the course for future events, programs, and other initiatives. Membership includes current full-time faculty, the Gallery Director and Curator of Collections, and alumni and friends of the department. If you’re interested in joining this group, please let us know.

The initiatives of the Board are three-fold: 1) to fund artist/art historian/curator residencies on campus; 2) to fund scholarships for GC art majors studying abroad; and 3) to fund the outdoor public art program funded by Dick Spears (GC’57) and brought to life in 2007.

The Advisory Board will meet again in late Spring 2014.  If you are interested in serving on this Board, please contact the Department Chair, Daniel Graham: 502-863-8129 or email:
