In 2020, The Bascom implemented an annual theme to focus our exhibition and related programming for the year, and we will be doing so again in 2021. This year we are exploring the theme of “play” throughout our exciting exhibition schedule.

As children, we develop physically, emotionally, and intellectually by participating in the most liberating of activities, through play. Friendships are forged through play. We learn new skills through play. Even as adults, playfulness opens our minds to fresh creative expression, problem solving, and imaginative exploration essential to unlocking our best creative self.

We encourage your support through sponsorship of our 2021 Exhibitions Program that invites the surrounding communities to come “play” in The Bascom’s galleries this year. You may choose a specific exhibition of interest or support the exhibitions program as a whole by becoming a Year-Round Sponsor. Sponsorship support can range from $1,000 to $25,000 or more.

We thank you for considering sponsorship of our exhibition programming, and want to express the importance of these exhibitions as the centerpiece of all programming at The Bascom. The Bascom continues to touch lives in our community because of the generosity of our supporters. Without you, none of what we do is possible. Your generosity sends the message that the arts are a critical component to the personal and professional development of all in our region, and with your help we will continue to create visual arts experiences that inspire and empower individuals and communities through seeing, thinking, and doing.
