The Annual Giving Program brings together an important and dynamic group of individuals who share a passion for art and the Fine Arts Museums. Their gifts provide vital support for our exhibitions, education programs, and the care of our collections. Annual Giving donors receive a host of attractive benefits, including invitations to exclusive exhibition openings, private tours, and VIP tickets for exhibitions.
Individual donors to the Fine Arts Museums make our exhibitions, education programs, and the conservation of our collections possible. There are many ways that you can support the Museums:

Dating from the 1960s to the present, the works in this exhibition transcend the limitations of traditional photography in which the camera simply captures a unique view or a decisive moment in time. Breaking free of the conventional frame, they are instead the products of various methods of assembling and organizing multiple photographic images into larger artistic statements.
Bay Area artist William T. Wiley (b. 1937) is well known as a painter, sculptor, and draftsman whose imagery is infused with a lively blend of satiric wit, cultural commentary, and storytelling. I Keep Foolin’ Around focuses on his significant work in printmaking and features prints from the museum’s collection, including its William T. Wiley Print Archive and the Crown Point Press Archive.
