SAVED THE DATE! 05.07.20

During this time of crisis, art offers us hope and continues to bring people together, even as we are all keeping ourselves apart. At the Pence, we strongly believe in the power and magic of art to create community, but we need your help to keep these connections alive.

This spring, we invite you to share the gift of art with the community during Big Day of Giving on May 7th, an annual event where donors pledge their support online to organizations that make a difference.

In previous years, donors helped us fund our facility repairs during Big Day of Giving. This year, we ask for your support in helping us replace the necessary funds we typically raise from our cancelled Garden Tour event. Your donation will help us preserve the Pence for the future.

To safeguard public health, we had to cancel our Garden Tour this year, coordinated for 13 years by Sue Smith (above).

Like countless other nonprofits, we have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. For public health and safety, we have closed our doors since March 14th, and cancelled our Garden Tour. This followed the January destruction of “White Light Madonna,” a sculpture by Donna Billick that was an irreplaceable treasure of our gallery. To increase the safety of the Pence, we have invested in the installation of a new and improved security system.

Because of this expense and our loss of revenue due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we hope to raise $20,000 this year through the Big Day of Giving. All funds raised will be used to continue to keep our gallery free and open to more than 18,000 people we serve annually through our innovative exhibits and programs.  Right now, we are creating online tours of our exhibits and projects to do for families at home at youtube.com.

To help us keep art alive at the Pence, donate through www.bigdayofgiving.org on May 7th. Every donation helps! Donations from $15 to $10,000 are welcome, and donor Mark M. Glickman will match donations up to $2,500!
