Annual Fund

To see the Hunterdon Art Museum’s Lace not Lace exhibition is to experience pure beauty and visual poetry. This show is the perfect example of the Museum fulfilling our promise to you to exhibit exciting works of contemporary art, craft and design.
It also represents a number of groundbreaking firsts for contemporary art museums in the U.S.
  • First exhibition in the United States to focus solely on contemporary fiber art made from traditional bobbin and needle lacemaking techniques.
  • First installation in the United States of Choi+Shine’s Urchins
  • First exhibition in the world to exhibit in its entirety Lieve Jerger’s Carriage of Lost Love.
We hope you were among the thousands of people from Hunterdon County — and from around the world — who walked beside and beneath the Urchins and saw their magical glow in the evening light and were astonished by the intricacy of the copper wire lace construction of the Carriage of Lost Love.
We could not have mounted this groundbreaking exhibition without your annual support. And we thank you! With the Lace, not Lace exhibition and other equally important shows HAM is recognized — nationally and internationally — as a museum at the forefront of contemporary art.
As the year draws to a close, we ask you to please consider supporting the 2018 Annual Appeal with a gift of $50, $100, $250, $1,000 – or whatever you can afford.  Can we count on your support to help us reach our $28,000 goal by December 31st?
