Sponsor TMA Exhibits

TMA wants to enhance the quality of life for everyone who calls the Fox Cites home as an important cultural center for those working and living here. Sponsor one of our exhibitions below for $2,500-$25,000 to help the visual arts in our community and as a platform for name or brand recognition.

Business partnerships are tax-deductible and, most importantly, provide the museum with the critical support needed to achieve our mission to inspire and connect all people through creative experiences and the visual arts.

Art is Her

Ongoing 2020-2023
Atrium Gallery, 1st Floor

Since 2020, TMA’s Atrium gallery space has been solely dedicated to our Art is Her initiative. The Art is Her exhibition series celebrates women artists and champions their goal of achieving museum presence equal to men. Women have long seen inequality in the art world, and today remain dramatically underrepresented and undervalued in museums and galleries.

Artists Oct-Dec 2021: Nikki Johnson and Abby Gammons.

Artists showcased in 2022: Kasey McCormick, Lora Vahlsing, Xizhou Xie, Shiloah Coley, Lisa Wicka, and Elizabeth Kazda.
