Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art (MoA) maintains over 4,500 art objects in its permanent collection. Each object contributes to the museum’s unique identity – telling narratives, histories, and ideas that can be observed and studied in its gallery spaces. Stewardship of the art collection is critical to the museum’s present activities and future goals. For 1Day1SMC, the MoA is seeking $5,000, your contribution will directly support stewardship of the museum’s collection.  

What is Collections Stewardship?

  • Conservation and restoration 
  • Cleaning and repair
  • Safe storage
  • Expert consultation and research

Why is Collections Stewardship important?

  • Collections are one of the most valuable resources of a museum; they contribute to a museum’s unique identity and purpose.
  • MoA is charged with the responsibility to preserve and care for its collections in perpetuity.
  • This care requires ongoing expenses including archival materials, storage equipment, and conservation activities.
  • Monetary contributions that support the care of the museum’s collections will enable students, faculty, and the communities the museum serves to freely view and study its collections in perpetuity. 

Your gift will contribute to the preservation of the MoA collections for future generations. Thank you.
