Exhibition Support

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, comprising the de Young and the Legion of Honor, are the largest public arts institution in San Francisco and one of the most respected in the United States.

This level of impact and recognition has been achieved in part thanks to the extraordinary array of special exhibitions presented at the de Young and the Legion of Honor. These shows go beyond “blockbuster” to offer Bay Area residents and visitors from around the world rare access to important collections and inspiring works of art. Recent examples include:

As might be expected, ambitious projects such as these come with considerable costs, and it is only through the committed support of donors at a variety of levels that the Museums’ exhibition program is made possible. Sponsors are recognized in a variety of ways, including on the exhibition’s title wall, and receive numerous other benefits, including complimentary catalogues, VIP tickets, and invitations to special events.

For more information about exhibition support, please contact Pam Earing, Director of Individual Giving, at 415-750-8940 or pearing@famsf.org.
