"Pay what you wish" for admission during Art Museum Day 2013 (which is also being observed by Levine Center for the Arts partners the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture and the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art). Your donation supports making the priceless artistic treasures of these facilities more accessible to the larger community, as well as enabling museums to mount unforgettable educational programming.
The celebration is in conjunction with the Association of Art Museum Directors. Since 2010, the AAMD has encouraged art museums across the nation to participate in conjunction with the International Council of Museums’ (ICOM) International Museum Day, dedicated to promoting the value of museums in society. Over 100 AAMD member museums have participated each year. This year’s theme is “museums (memory + creativity) = social change.”
