To achieve our institutional mission, the Gallery relies on the generosity of our closest friends. We invite you to join our circle of supporters with a gift to the Gallery’s Annual Fund. Your financial contribution directly enhances the quality of our exhibitions and visitor experience.
From the Director
At the Yale University Art Gallery, we have always known the original works of art in our collection delight the eyes and minds of students and visitors of all ages. Now an expanded array of public programs offers our audiences more ways to learn from and enjoy great art.
Last year, attendance at lectures, artist talks, film screenings, music and dance performances, and family events more than doubled. One in every fourteen visitors to the Gallery participates in a program!
How much are the museum’s free admission and programs worth to you? A contribution to the Annual Fund helps offset the day-to-day expenses that sustain the Gallery. Please take a moment to make a donation and support our robust roster of free programs. If you have already participated in the Annual Fund this year, thank you. Your gift strengthens our efforts.
No longer is the Gallery limited to a regional audience. When you are not in New Haven, we hope you connect with the Gallery online to experience all we offer. Let our collection come to life for you wherever you are.
With thanks for your support of this venerable teaching museum.
