Sponsorship Opportunities

Through a partnership with the Boardwalk Art Show, not only will your business get sponsorship benefits, but you will be helping us make our community better. Last year we were able to bring 4,000 disadvantaged children to the museum at no cost. For many of these children it is their first time visiting a museum and creates a lasting memory. Through our education outreach program, we went into title 1 schools to teach math, history, science, and various other subjects through art to nearly 10,000 students. This innovative way of teaching complex concepts enriches the learning experience for thousands of children. This represents less than ten percent of disadvantaged children in our area. Help us achieve our goal of enriching the life of every child through contemporary art.
