CONSERVATION & PRESERVATION OF ART PIECES
A SPONSOR OF 99 TIMES EVENT 

EDUCATION

FOSAM helps to fund the education programs available to the public.

This includes two different ways we do this.

The first is that we FOSAM members help sponsor of the Museum's  Family Art Lab. In the "please touch" area, children are encouraged to learn by doing in a visually stimulating and aesthetically pleasing space. This dynamic and engaging spot  brings families of all shapes and sizes to the Museum and keeps them coming back. Many thanks to Museum Educator Kate Baird for her great ideas and energy! Families pay no fee or tuition to enjoy these great resources; all activities and materials are free to everyone. This is an ongoing and growing initiative and we'd love to have your support.

ACQUISITIONS OF ART FOR THE MUSEUM
SPONSOR OF
ART IN BLOOM

Artist Catherine P. O’Neill,
“Winter Sunrise”, transparent watercolor, Watercolor USA (WUSA 2011). This piece was awarded a $250 Cash Award. Added to collection in 2012

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to increase our membership in order to sponsor the annual Art in Bloom event.

This special event invites floral designers from throughout the region to imaginatively interpret works of art on view in the Museum's galleries and presents them alongside those works for the enjoyment of our community. Proceeds from Art In Bloom's Preview Party and Floral Arranging and Mixed Media Workshops benefit the Museum's Art Acquisition Fund.

With our Membership, we strive to raise money to assist with sponsoring funds to use for conservation of already owned museum pieces.  We do this by helping to sponsor the

99 Times Party

99 Times Party is the Museum's signature fundraising event blending spirits, music, fashion, food, and frivolity to benefit our Conservation & Preservation Fund. The name is funny, but the concept is simple. Hosted on an annual basis, this event helps preserve our collection for the next 100 years, so that it can continue to delight and educate audiences for generations to come.
