Support contemporary art creation, presentation, and education today!

For more than four decades, FWM has been an environment where contemporary art thrives through innovative exhibitions and programs.

Double Your Impact! Make a gift to the Match Campaign or join as a member by June 30 and your contribution will be matched 1-1 by our Board, up to $35,500.

The temporary closure of FWM in mid-March, due to COVID-19, has had a significant impact on our Artists-in-Residence, staff, and creative community. FWM apprentices are without a studio, our upcoming installation for Samara Golden: Upstairs at Steve’s has been put on hold, and we are unable to welcome visitors for on-site learning.

In light of these challenges, our resilient staff continues to find new ways to bring FWM to you, through our FWM @ HOME initiative—a collection of online resources for the self-isolating and culturally curious, including digital panel discussions, programming with partner museums, and deep dives into our collection. The FWM Studio team is using their expertise to sew face masks, share patterns, and 3D print face shields for medical personnel, while others are volunteering to help artists craft their applications for relief funding.

Unrestricted gifts are critical to sustain our operations, exhibitions, and programming. Our Board is rallying around FWM during this difficult time and challenges you, the FWM community, to contribute $35,500 by June 30. Any gift you make between now and the end of June will be matched one-to-one by personal contributions from FWM Board members.

Consider doubling the impact of your donation or membership today to support experimentation in contemporary art.
