The goal of the capital campaign is to collect the funds necessary to acquire a building in the Eugene/Springfield area in Oregon that can house art collection of the Children's Art Museum as well as serve as a public Multicultural Education Center.
Pleas step forward and join our Advisory Committee to work on the strategic plan to bring about this goal.
Your donations on this page go directly to our Pacific Continental bank account dedicated to this campaign.
After many years teaching visual arts to children and participating in national and international events, we have accumulated a world-class collection of amazing art created by artists ages 4 to 18. The breadth and depth of these works defy any notion of children's art being in any way less than "the real thing". Art collectors around the world, as well as psychologists and educators, have come to recognize the importance and appreciate the fine artistic qualities of children's creations. We have exhibited parts of our collection at various temporary locations, but we are convinced that this art and the viewing public deserve more. Our desire is to share masterpieces in our collection with local audience, and to bring in international art exhibits. We would like to give Eugene a permanent museum of children's art that will grow and become the focal point of a variety of artictic and educational activities in the city. It will be the first children's art museum in Oregon, one of very few in the country. The museum will compliment the rich cultural scene of Eugene, at the same time widening its cosmopolitan qualitty with multicultural art exhibits and exchanges.
We can have one like these in our own back yard!
