2022 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 $12 million, providing for more than 220 works of art.

The 2022 campaign will help underwrite the addition of twenty-nine artworks by five American artists to the GCMA permanent collection. But Wait - There's More! includes such familiar names as David Drake, Jasper Johns, William H. Johnson, Jamie Wyeth, and Andrew Wyeth. 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.

Art for Greenville Exhibition | But Wait - There's More!

Titled But Wait - There's More!, the 2022 Art for Greenville acquisitions package, features twenty-nine works in various media by five artists. Bracketed by a rare 1840 poem jar by enslaved potter David Drake (c. 1800 to c. 1870) and an evocative 2018 etching by Jasper Johns (born 1930), the exhibition covers 180 years of American history, and enriches and expounds on the work of some of the most important artists represented in the GCMA Permanent Collection, including David Drake, Jasper Johns, William H. Johnson, Jamie Wyeth, and Andrew Wyeth.

All of these acquisitions for Greenville’s permanent collection are supported by donations to the 2022 Art for Greenville campaign. We hope you will join us, along with our Corporate Partner United Community Bank, 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.
