We are delighted to invite you to support the Allentown Art Museum through our signature annual fundraising event.  The 2019 Allentown Art Museum Gala will be held in the Museum galleries on Saturday, April 6.  Help us to maintain and expand the vibrant and valuable place the Museum has come to hold in our community.  The Annual Gala exclusively supports the core financial activities of the Museum, and many of our strongest supporters will be joining us.  Please be among them.

The Allentown Art Museum is proud to recognize this years distinguished honorees: The Butz Family. The family’s activities and financial support show the breadth of how community is defined. The Butz Family has been supporting the Allentown Art Museum’s growing impact on the culture of the community for decades through generous sponsorship of exhibitions and free summers, stalwart membership in the Kress Society, and providing building and architectural expertise to name only a few examples. Lee and Dolly’s grandson Michael Butz said recently, “We hope and expect that someday well be remembered more for our commitment to our community than we are for being a builder of buildings.” Finding a family whose several generations have sustained and supported the Museum in similar fashion would be a daunting challenge, indeed.

Kindly review the information below and consider an underwriting or sponsorship gift in support of the 2019 Gala.  We would love to include your name in the evening’s program book, and offer you the benefits associated with each level of sponsorship. Your participation will help to keep the Allentown Art Museum a relevant and vibrant leader in the community.

The Allentown Art Museum brings transformative value to the community through the presentation and celebration of global cultures, multiple forms of art, and a myriad of educational programs that are often the first exposure for thousands of young children to understanding and appreciating the arts.  The vision of the Museum is to remain a leader and collaborative partner with many throughout our community. We invite your support and participation in
achieving this goal.
