Asheville Art Museum

Log Number: ARPML-250884-OMLS-22

The Asheville Art Museum in North Carolina seeks to rebuild and expand capacity and outreach for its learning and engagement programs serving all ages. The museum will expand school and teacher programs, deepen relationships with diverse communities, enrich on-site and virtual programs with participation of artists and other experts, and support the reintroduction of on-site family programs. The museum also will hire an associate to develop or reestablish relationships with schools, libraries, day care centers, and other community centers. This project will provide academic and professional enrichment for students and educators, as well as opportunities for family and peer group bonding, as the local community recovers from the social and educational impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The project also will work to bridge the city's urban and rural divide through outreach and community building.
