Play a role in the Weatherspoon's acquisition process, and get an inside look at the curatorial process.
Weatherspoon members at the $1,000 (Benefactors) and higher levels enjoy two invitations to the Museum's Annual Benefactors Choice event.
Benefactor funds are reserved throughout the year to be put toward the purchase of artwork(s) at the annual Benefactors Choice event. Works acquired become a part of the museum's permanent collection.
At this annual event, the Weatherspoon's director and curators present three pre-selected works of art, any of which would be a great addition to the museum's collection. Following these informative talks and some spirited discussion, the participants vote, and the work receiving the majority of votes is acquired.
Become a part of the future Weatherspoon Art Museum collection by contributing at this level
and casting your vote at this year's acquisition event.
