2018 Art for Greenville
Building a World-Class Collection for Our Community

Over the past three decades the Museum’s annual fund-raising campaign, Art for Greenville, has supported the purchase of scores of important works by America’s greatest artists. While operational support from Greenville County taxpayers ensures accessibility and free admission for all, the art collection depends on donors like you and your continuing generosity.

To date, the campaign has raised more than $10 million, providing for more than 175 works of art.

This year, the GCMA will add fifteen works of art. Featured in the exhibition Stories from Home, the works offer a snapshot of the American South during the first half of the twentieth century. 

Your commitment to the GCMA and support of its collections allows us to bring art to life for a wide range of Upstate audiences, including children and seniors. Please help us continue to grow this extraordinary educational and cultural asset—a world-class collection that’s right at home in Greenville.

 Benefits of giving to the GCMA

Art for Greenville Exhibition | Stories from Home

The fifteen Southern-related works included in Stories from Home illustrate a variety of approaches to narrative painting that flourished in the region between the two world wars. After the chaos and destruction of World War I, many American artists retreated from the cutting edge of European abstraction. They developed more conservative approaches to their depictions of everyday life here at home without completely abandoning modernist experimentation with color and form. Powerful storytelling techniques, grounded in characterization and context, as well as allegory and symbolism, were employed to inspire viewers to draw personal meaning from key elements in each composition.

From the Roaring Twenties through the Great Depression to the coming of age of America’s “Greatest Generation,” the three decades encompassed by Stories from Home witnessed this country’s extraordinary cultural transformation from embracing a simplistic nationalism to shouldering the unprecedented responsibilities of global leadership.

All of these acquisitions for Greenville’s permanent collection are supported by donations to the 2018 Art for Greenville campaign. The exhibition Stories from Home is on view through September 16, 2018.
