Get Involved


To share its collection, exhibitions, and programs with thousands of visitors each year, the Spencer relies on donors, sponsors, and volunteers who provide gifts of time, talent, and treasure. These partners assist the Spencer in its mission to explore the capacity of art to spark curiosity, inspire creativity, and create connections among people.

There are many ways to support the Spencer, with many benefits and opportunities offered to recognize and thank our donors and volunteers. Your contributions are essential to our shared success. Through membership in the Friends of the Art Museum, support for special projects, sponsorship of exhibitions and programs, and gifts of time and talent, our partners allow us to share our nationally-recognized collection and programs with a broad audience. We thank our members, sponsors, and volunteers for their tremendous support, and look forward to working with new friends as we continue to pursue new horizons.
