What an amazing day! Thanks to your help and your incredible generosity during this year’s Spring2ACTion event, we achieved FIRST Place on the “most donors” leader board, winning $5,000; reached SECOND place on the “most dollars” leader board, winning $2,500; won an additional $2,300 throughout the day; AND raised $32,416 from an astounding 610 donors! The grand total for the launch of our “30-something” Madison Annex Project on Spring2ACTion day was $42,216!!!

We are overwhelmed and honored by the outpouring of generosity from our Art League community! And most grateful! With donations from the Spring2ACTion initiative combined with other contributions received toward the “30-something” Madison Annex Project, plus the grant prizes earned on May 2, and the very generous $35,000 lead gift provided anonymously by a dedicated and generous student — the current amount received to date for our Madison Annex Project is… $82,339!!!!

You had the power to make this happen and you did! Thank you!! We are off to a fantastic start for funding our build-out campaign, and are excited to bring you this newly expanded facility in the fall!

A million thanks,

The Art League Staff and Board

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.
