2020 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 $11 million, providing for more than 200 works of art.

This year, the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, the GCMA will honor two women who not only were active in the women's suffrage movement, but were also pioneering modern artists: Mary Cassatt and Anne Goldthwaite. 

An internationally recognized figure in the Impressionist movement, Mary Cassatt specialized in intimate depictions of women, especially mothers with children. Clarissa, Turned Left with Her Hand to Her Ear (1895) is a classic example of the iconic artist's colorful and spontaneous technique.

Anne Goldthwaite, a native of Montgomery, Alabama, arrived in Paris in 1906, and there she quickly assiilated the innovations of Matisse and Cezanne. She returned to the U.S. in 1913, and was one of the few women whose work was exhibited in the infamous Armory Show of that year. We will add more than 60 of her works in various media to the GCMA collection as part of the 2020 Art for Greenville collection.

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 | Modern Woman

The more than 60 artworks included in the upcoming exhibition Anne Goldthwaite:Modern Woman demonstrate the artist's personal brand of modern expression as she applied it to subjects that include Parisian courtyards, Manhattan skyscrapers, and images of the Depression-era South. Forward-looking and optimistic, her work pays homage to the new independent spirit of American women.

All of these acquisitions for Greenville’s permanent collection are supported by donations to the 2020 Art for Greenville campaign. We hope you will join us, along with our Corporate Partner United Community Bank, in celebrating the centennial of women's suffrage by supporting our new acquisitions.
