League of 25: Fund an Exhibit, Have Some Fun

The Art League is launching a new society of donors to fund exhibits in the gallery, and it’s not too exclusive to join. For just $100, you can be a founding member of this new group!

Donations will go to, among other costs, hiring a juror.

Combining, as usual, art and fun, the League of 25 will be made up of — you guessed it — 25 people who donate $100 each to fully fund an exhibit, and then take part in an activity on the night of the opening reception.

It all kicks off at the “Earth” exhibit, opening in April. Teams (participation optional) will use found materials to make a sculpture, relay-style, in a limited amount of time. The winning sculpture will take its place in the exhibit alongside the juried pieces.

Putting together an exhibition each month takes a lot of time and work — and money. Donations go toward hiring a juror, providing awards, gallery maintenance, and paying for staff, the reception, promotion, and office supplies.

Your donation ensures these shows can go on. Round up your friends, family, or classmates from your Art League School class, and see what a difference a few hundred dollars makes.

The popular Art on the Rocks event was held for the second time in 2011.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
