Acquisitions and Care Fund
The Albuquerque Museum Foundation Acquisitions and Care Fund empowers the Museum to grow and preserve its collection for future generations, using it to tell new stories and promote learning across cultures. Thank you for your support.
Did you know the Albuquerque Museum’s collections consist of more than 175,000 works of art, artifacts, and images? As one of New Mexico’s great artistic and historic resources, the Museum assumes the enormous responsibility of adding to and preserving its collections for future generations.
Having the means to acquire new works and maintain its collections, will help the Museum remain relevant and better serve its diverse audiences. Several wonderful contributions have already aided in this effort over the years; however, the work was conducted incrementally. Until now.
The Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of its first-ever fund dedicated to the acquisition and care of objects in the Albuquerque Museum’s collection. Our new Acquisitions and Care Fund further empowers the Museum to grow and preserve its collection for future generations, using it to tell new stories and promote learning across cultures.
This fund also provides you with a new way to be part of the Museum’s future, helping to champion its current and future collections. Your generous gift, of any size, is deeply appreciated.
“The commitment to diversify the Albuquerque Museum collections is important to me personally. Your financial gift to purchase artwork, and historical objects and photographs for the collection, gives us the resources to collect in an intentional way that enables the Museum to reflect a more nuanced story of the greater Southwest,” says Albuquerque Museum’s Head Curator, Josie Lopez, Ph.D.
