Gallery launches its Founders’ Club
The John Curtin Gallery has launched its inaugural donors’ circle – the JCG Founders’ Club – and all Gallery supporters are encouraged to become members. The Club will create funding for expanded Gallery activities including community engagement programs and enhanced access to the Collection.
Members of the Founders’ Club commit to a minimum donation of $1,000 annually over three years and will receive invitations to VIP previews and special events, including behind-the-scenes tours and the chance to meet visiting artists. They also receive an exclusive lapel pin and their names will be included on a plaque to be located near the doors of the Gallery.
Founders’ Club revenue has already supported a stunning installation of a World War One submarine composed of books from a discarded library, by WA artist Jo Darbyshire, as part of the Gallery’s program marking the centenary of the Armistice.
The Founders’ Club will also support plans to exhibit a selection of The Herbert Mayer Collection of Carrolup Artworks at Colgate University in New York as part of their bicentenary celebrations in 2019. The Herbert Mayer Collection has been a treasured part of the Curtin University Art Collection, and a wonderful tool for reconciliation, since it passed into the custodianship of the Gallery in 2013.
We would love to welcome you to the JCG Founders’ Club.
