The Art Museum is asking for your support to help keep exhibitions open and free, protect our collection, provide and enhance educational programs and supply the Museum with additional funding in areas where it is needed. As an arts enthusiast, your continued support is essential to the Museum’s enduring vitality, and your gift plays an invaluable role in its future. Here’s how:
Exhibition support inspires and enriches our community. Our exhibitions and related programming encourage deeper relationships with art, underscoring its significance in our everyday lives.
Education support extends the Museum experience beyond what’s on the walls. This year, the Museum made an impact on over 3,500 Horry and Georgetown County students, spanning ages 2 to 18. Half of them participated in fieldtrips to the Museum, and the remaining half received visits from our Education staff to their respective classrooms and community programming sites.
Museum operations support preserves and protects our historic building. The City of Myrtle Beach and Museum staff work hard to maintain our charming 1920s beach villa, which has become a landmark in our community. It is an ongoing effort that requires our constant attention and care. This year, over 30,000 visitors enjoyed our galleries and Carolyn Burroughs Tea Porch.
We at the Art Museum value your patronage. Please consider a generous gift to the Annual Fund that will serve as an investment in the bright future of the Museum and all those who come to enjoy it. Please consider making a donation to the Art Museum’s Annual Fund. You can make a donation in one of three ways: call the Art Museum at 843.238.2510 and make a donation over the phone with a credit card, make a donation online or mail a check made out to the Art Museum to our address listed below.
