Patron gifts are essential to the growth of the Museum’s collection. Gifts of art serve to increase both the quantity and quality of the permanent collection and further enhance our ability to engage visitors in visual art. Sara Virginia Jones, Dr. and Mrs. Beckett Howorth, Mr. and Mrs. Harvey B. Heidelberg, The McCarty Fund, and The Gallery Guild are but a few of the many generous benefactors who have contributed to our collection. Patrons may give works of art to the Mississippi Museum of Art as an outright gift, an irrevocable promised gift, a bequest, or as the gift of a percentage of value over a time period designated by the gifter. Gifts must be approved by the Museum’s acquisitions committee and the Board of Trustees. We recommend discussing your gift and estate plans with your own legal and financial advisors to ensure your personal and charitable goals are wisely met.

For more information on gifting art to the Museum, contact Chief Curator Roger Ward at 601.965.9935 or rward@msmuseumart.org.
