From an abandoned dog pound to an architecturally-significant historic building...
Did you know that the Riverside Art Museum was formerly located in an abandoned dog pound that was leased from the city for $1/year?
That all changed in 1967 when our current Julia Morgan-designed building was purchased from the YWCA and transformed into a center for arts education and exhibitions.
As we look to the next 50 years, your support is critical to RAM’s continued stewardship of the museum’s historic building, its role as a repository for locally created and collected artwork, and its distinction as a place for people of all ages to gather and learn.
As an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit and the region’s most prominent visual arts museum, we rely on you to help us inspire creativity and economic development, engage lifelong learners, and strengthen community by connecting people to place within our diverse region.
We invite you to celebrate 50 Years of Art & Architecture with the Riverside Art Museum by becoming a sponsor and by participating in our 1960s-themed Gala on June 2, 2017. For more information on year-long sponsorship opportunities, contact Valerie Found at firstname.lastname@example.org or 951.684.7111 x 316.
We're asking the community for stories/memories about the museum and time spent in our historic Julia Morgan-designed building since the art museum purchased the building from the Riverside YWCA in 1967. If you have a story to tell, please email it to Valerie.
