Phoenix Art Museum: support will benefit exhibitions and acquisitions

The Phoenix Art Museum has received a $475,000 grant from the Men’s Arts Council, which is a nonprofit member organization of Valley philanthropists dedicated to supporting the museum’s community-outreach programs through annual giving.

The gift will benefit several initiatives, including the museum’s exhibitions, engagement efforts, acquisitions, and general operations, over the next two years, according to a press release.

“Phoenix Art Museum is grateful for the ongoing generosity of the Men’s Arts Council,” said Jeremy Mikolajczak, the museum’s Sybil Harrington director and CEO.

“This new gift, which comes on the heels of a previous $1 million in support, will allow the nuseum to present a number of incredible exhibitions to our community during the 2024 and 2025 seasons, exposing audiences to innovative forms of creative expression by artists from diverse cultures, including Manjari Sharma, artists from eastern Europe, and contemporary American artists. It will also allow us to acquire new works for our contemporary and American art collections. We are deeply appreciative of MAC’s steadfast support of our mission and operations.”

The $475,000 grant, in addition to MAC’s generous annual giving, will support a number of key initiatives throughout 2024 and 2025, including sponsorships of upcoming exhibitions Expanding Darshan: Manjari Sharma, To See and Be Seen and Multiple Realities: Experimental Art in the Eastern Bloc, 1960-1980s, in addition to forthcoming collection spotlight American Modern.

The gift will additionally fund themed programming and engagement opportunities presented in celebration of Barbie: A Cultural Icon; acquisitions that will diversify and expand the nuseum’s contemporary and American art collections, such as photographs by Ivan B. McClellan; and exhibitions that will be presented in 2025 and announced on a later date.

“MAC is honored to support Phoenix Art Museum’s thoughtful and dedicated efforts to bringing renowned and diverse artists, collections, and exhibitions to our community,” said Devin Sreecharana, president of the Men’s Art Council.
