50 Works banner

Fifty works on paper have been selected for special attention from the Binghamton University Art Museum's collection of over 3,000 objects. With the opening in the fall of 2013 of the Kenneth C. Lindsay Study Room, museum staff members are working to make objects — particularly prints, drawings and photographs — readily available to be seen by students, faculty and the general public. Currently, many works on paper are inadequately matted and stored.

The Art Museum has launched a special initiative to increase access to the museum's permanent collection. As a sponsor making a $500 donation, you make it possible for one of these 50 outstanding works of art (you choose which one) to be housed on acid-free matboard, placed in an achival Solander box with several other works, and displayed on new shelving in the vault adjacent to the Kenneth C. Lindsay Study Room.


If you are interested in making your donation online, please visit Binghamton's giving page.  Choose “other, please specify” for designation and indicate “Art Museum, acct #10960” in the space provided. Please indicate the artwork you wish to sponsor in the “Comments” section at the bottom of the gift form. You may also print the attached donation form (.pdf, 172kb) and mail your payment to the Art Museum.

Once you have made your selection and donation, the new director of the art museum, Diane Butler, will contact you to arrange a personal visit to discuss your chosen work of art. The piece you select will be featured with others in a special exhibition opening January 2014. As a sponsor of this special project, you will see your name on the exhibition label.
Sponsors can be individuals, families, businesses or organizations. Your generous support enables the museum to pursue its mission of teaching using original works of art.
