2024 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 $14 million, providing for more than 275 works of art.

The 2024 campaign will help underwrite the addition of sixteen artworks by American artist Horace Day to the GCMA permanent collection. Horace Day in the Lowcountry focuses on the artist’s work that was painted over four decades of traveling along the coast—from Charleston to Hilton Head Island. A plein air realist, Day helped to extend the Charleston Renaissance into the post-World War II era by modernizing the genre, combining the punch of brilliant colors and textured brushstrokes with the same love of place expressed by Alfred Hutty, Alice Ravenel Huger Smith, Anna Heyward Taylor, and Elizabeth O’Neill Verner.Collectively, these works further enhance the cultural and educational impact of our mission as they challenge and inspire us.

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.

All of these acquisitions for Greenville’s permanent collection are supported by donations to the 2024 Art for Greenville campaign. We hope you will join us, along with our Corporate Partner United Community, as we seek to build an unprecedented collection of the finest examples of American art—art that draws our diverse community together and stands as a legacy for future generations.
