Support the Museum
Your generous donations enable the Hunterdon Art Museum to offer quality art exhibitions and education and to maintain our landmark site.
Gifts to the Annual Fund provide unrestricted support that is essential to the daily operations of the Hunterdon Art Museum. Annual Fund contributions make it possible to offer a wide array of quality exhibitions and educational programs and maintain our beautiful historic site, the stone mill and the Clinton Mills Dam and Dike. Your tax deductible gift ensures that the Museum will continue to be a place where people of all generations come together through art and art education.
The Hunterdon Art Museum is unique. Housed in an 1836 mill, the Museum exhibits contemporary art, craft, and design and has a large studio program for children and adults. Lectures by artists and curators, workshops by exhibiting artists, programs for schools, classes for adults with developmental disabilities, and a summer art camp that offers over sixty weeklong camps are some of the programs that distinguish us. Your gift to the Annual Fund makes the Museum and its programs possible.
To give to the Annual Fund, please e-mail Marjorie Frankel Nathanson, the Museum’s Executive Director, or call (908) 735-8415, ext. 111.
Please check to see if your employer will match your contribution. The match will substantially increase your support, making your gift to the Hunterdon Art Museum even more beneficial to the Museum.
The Museum’s endowment provides financial stability to the institution. Revenue from the endowment helps fund all facets of the Museum.

Individuals, corporations and foundations are invited to support the Museum’s programs by underwriting an exhibition, an education program or a special event.
The Museum presents approximately thirteen exhibitions of contemporary art and design annually. From thematic exhibitions that show major trends in contemporary art to one-person shows that reflect quiet personal journeys, the Museum offers exhibitions that engage and challenge our audience. Underwriting an exhibition or partially underwriting an exhibition gives you or your company the opportunity to be acknowledged on the gallery walls, in press releases, brochures or catalogs and in donor lists, and allows you to have a private party in the galleries.
The Museum’s education activities for children and adults include studio, interpretive and outreach programs. With more than 300 workshops and art courses that support lifelong learning each year, the Museum is an educational resource for its community. Educational offerings for children and adults, including a program that is specifically for adults with severe developmental disabilities, play a central role in the Hunterdon Art Museum’s services to the public. Sponsorships can be tailored to your educational interests. You or your company will be acknowledged in all of our educational marketing materials and in the Museum’s donor lists.
Artzone is a space where young children visiting the Museum with their families can do a hands-on art activity using instructions provided by the Museum or make art from their imaginations. In ArtZone, children feel the excitement of creating a work of art, the pleasure of being in a museum without being told not to touch, and the pride of hanging their own work of art in a museum. It is in the comfortable environment of spaces like Artzone that lifelong interest in the arts begins to take shape. Your company’s underwriting can brand Artzone or provide partial support.
