Did you know that less than 30% of the works of art in our Permanent Collection are authored by women? By becoming a Woman of Influence for Women’s Art, you will be a change agent for a future generation.
By joining this network of visionary donors you will:
- Follow in the footsteps of four women who played a significant role towards the founding of KWAG by establishing an art collection in the 1920s for an art gallery
- Continue their trailblazing legacy by pooling your efforts with those of like-minded civic leaders and making targeted donations to a fund in support of women artists
- Bolster the representation of work created by women in the Permanent Collection through future acquisitions
With your annual donation of $500 or more, becoming a Woman of Influence for Women's Art entitles you to a unique array of donor benefits that recognize the instrumental role you play in shaping the future of KWAG:
- Invitations to two exclusive events per year with women artists and curators including behind-the-scenes tours of exhibitions
