SUPPORT THE JAMES RENWICK ALLIANCE ACQUISITION FUND
As the Renwick Gallery approaches its 50th anniversary, the James Renwick Alliance for Craft is renewing its commitment to expanding the Gallery’s collection with the 50th Anniversary Acquisitions Fund. The fund is part of the JRA’s long history of supporting acquisitions, including iconic pieces like Karen LaMonte’s Reclining Dress Impression with Drapery, Judy McKie’s Monkey Settee, and the Nick Cave Soundsuit.
The Gallery has an ambitious plan to build its collection, not just by filling gaps, but by expanding its range and scope, adding artists who are new to the collection, artists whose work is great but has not been in the spotlight, and artists who are an important part of the future of craft. The Gallery’s goal is to add more than 100 new objects to the collection.
The 50th Anniversary Acquisitions Fund will support that effort. All of the money raised for this fund will support acquisitions for the Renwick Gallery’s permanent collection, chosen from the list of works that the curators have developed.
Donors to the fund will receive recognition and other benefits described below. Donate now to be a part of this historic and unprecedented moment in craft history.

** Due to the shutdowns and various restrictions on gathering, the exhibitions listed below are tentative and may be changed without notice. If planning to visit, please call ahead to verify the events are still open. A small benefit is that many venues have put their shows online and added other objects to their websites which are rarely seen online or in person.
