The Beach Museum of Art Board of Visitors has been an integral part of supporting the museum since the beginning of the museum. The group was instrumental in raising funds and support for the initial construction of the museum nearly 20 years ago.
During the past 20 years, the Board of Visitors has continued to provide the steady stream of financial support for staffing, programs and art acquisitions that make for a dynamic, growing museum of art. Most recently, the Board has funded a “young museum professional” position for a recent K-State graduate. Individual members helped make possible the acquisition of an important painting by John Steuart Curry.
State support for the arts and higher education has steadily diminished. The museum relies on private support to fulfill its mission to the campus, the community and beyond.
We salute the current members of the Board of Visitors for not only their financial support of the museum, but their advocacy for the museum.
