- National Museum of Women in the Arts

The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) was built upon the generosity of its members-individuals, corporations, organizations, and foundations who share our goal of recognizing the achievements of women in the visual and performing arts.

Today, NMWA continues to rely upon this broad based audience to support the innovative interpretive, outreach, exhibition, and research programs that the museum develops so it may educate people of all backgrounds about women who, in dedicating themselves to their art, change the role and perception of women in society.

We invite you to sustain the museum's vital work now and in the future by supporting one or more of our programs. In addition to promoting cultural enrichment opportunities in the region, across the nation, and around the world, NMWA contributors enjoy many benefits and prominent recognition for their important participation.

Your participation always has been — and always will be — a crucial part of our success. It's only through the loyal support of members that we've been able to present exhibitions, educational programs, and publications dedicated to celebrating the creativity of women artists.
