Opportunities Exhibition Sponsorship
Exhibition sponsorships offer a high degree of visibility. The Museum welcomes more than 24,000 visitors annually on-site and a larger number on our web site. Sponsorship of traveling exhibitions increases corporate visibility dramatically. Exhibitions can be selected based on projected audience size and content.
Educational Program Sponsorship
Approximately 5,000 school children participate in the Museum's nationally recognized educational programs every year. A 50-member docent force designs all tours to meet the educational and cultural requests from K-12 public and private schools, University audiences, seniors, and special needs populations.
Selected Programs Available for Sponsorship
Early Visions, a program for high school students
with academic, community, and/or family
difficulties, provides an alternative learning setting
in the Museum, strengthens their visual arts
and academic skills, and through mentoring with
student docents, builds self-esteem and
encourages them to consider careers and college
The Writer's Eye competition, an annual literary
event, encourages people of all ages to write poetry
or prose inspired by works of art on view in the
Museum. The competition, uniting the verbal with
the visual, encourages writers to see and think art in
an altogether fresh way. The Museum receives
more than 1,000 entries per year, from 4th-12th
grade students, to retired community members.
Many teachers in area schools incorporate the Writer's Eye into their fall curriculum and return each year.
The University of Virginia Art Museum exhibits art from around the world dating from ancient times to the present. In addition to its permanent collection, the Museum offers changing exhibitions, accompanied by related programs and publications.
