Be a Friend


Friends make our world go 'round!

Members who gave EXPLORATION:

*monthly membership level

*memberships at this level can help keep the historic Marlor House, our exhibits, and exhibit openings free for anyone and everyone to explore.

Members who gave DISCOVERY:

*memberships at this level can help our staff and/or volunteers bring an art activity to a school, organization, or event so the community can discover painting, printmaking, sculpting, and more. In the 2018-2019 school year, we estimate over 2,000 school-age children in Baldwin County didn't have access to art teachers and the only access they had to art discovery was through programming like ours.

These creative outlets are usually free, inspire open dialogue, and unite groups of people who might not otherwise come together.
