From the Executive Director
The Albany Museum of Art fills a crucial role in our city’s return to wholeness and a sense of health and well-being. We always strive to be the gathering place where all can share, enjoy, and feel at home around art and culture. These positive experiences of art are essential and fundamental to our community’s vitality.
Over the last 40 years, donors like you have transformed the museum into a regional leader for the arts, known for its high-quality exhibitions and inspiring programs.
Thank you for supporting our work in the community. Your contribution today will provide much needed resources to bolster the AMA’s mission to offer hope to everyone, through the magic of art, and to remain courageous, creative, engaging, educational, and evolving with the communities we serve.
Andrew J. Wulf, Ph.D.
