We need your support today.

In the past year, we made dramatic cuts to our operating budget by reducing staff salaries, implementing staff furloughs, mounting fewer exhibitions, and shifting everything—our work and our programs—to a virtual space. These changes, coupled with your support, helped us make it through the year in stable condition. We couldn’t be more grateful.

Though we’re returning to “normal” in many ways, COVID-19 continues to affect MAG. It will take time to return to our typical revenue levels. Because we can’t rely as heavily on our earned income—such as event rentals and Creative Workshop enrollment—gifts from the MAG community remain especially crucial, so we are continuing our Protect the Arts campaign with urgency.

Please consider making a contribution or becoming a member before June 30 so that MAG can emerge from this crisis as an even stronger institution, one that brings world-class exhibitions to Rochester, makes art accessible, and provides engagement and educational opportunities for all.


With gratitude,
