About the Friends of the Evansville Museum

We are excited to share news about the future of the Evansville Museum’s affiliated groups, the Evansville Museum Guild and the Evansville Museum Contemporaries. In cooperation with the Museum’s Board of Trustees and the leadership of the Guild and Contemporaries, the two groups have merged in 2019.

The new Friends of the Evansville Museum will continue the decades-long work of both the Guild and Contemporaries in providing a variety of programs and fundraising events to support the mission of the Museum.

The Friends of the Museum will continue to sponsor annual exhibitions, including the High School Art Show, and underwrite the presentation of monetary awards in the Mid-States Art and Mid-States Craft competitions.

In 2019, the group will plan and present a Pre-Derby Luncheon & Fashion Show, Art in Bloom Preview Party and 4 B’s – a combination of the popular Brew Ha Ha with Bourbon, BBQ & Blues.

Everyone is welcome to join the Friends of the Evansville Museum. We invite you to consider becoming an active member of this new group.
