Tell us what you love! The Columbus Museum of Art is kicking off our “I Heart Free Sundays” initiative by asking our visitors what they love about CMA. During 2013, the Museum’s free Sundays will be underwritten by PNC Arts Alive. CMA received a grant of $50,000 from PNC Arts Alive, a three-year, $1.5-million grant initiative of The PNC Foundation. Now, the Museum is asking you to tell us why you love free Sundays.
Share your CMA Free Sundays story on Twitter or Instagram with #I(Heart)FreeSundays and tag @columbusmuseum.
You can also upload a video to YouTube with the tags I(heart)freesundays and columbusmuseum. One winning submission will be chosen as the inspiration for an upcoming CMA television campaign. Will it be yours?
PNC Arts Alive funds innovative arts programming that engages audiences in new ways. This is a very prestigious grant award. CMA was one of a select few arts organizations in the Central Ohio region selected for bold thinking around increasing arts access and engagement.
“The PNC Foundation has a long history of providing grants to organizations that strengthen and enrich the lives of our communities,” said Michael Gonsiorowski, PNC regional president for central Ohio. “We understand that a rich arts community is a significant driver of our economic success, providing employment, boosting tourism and making the region attractive for businesses, residents and visitors.”
“Free Sundays are one of the many ways we achieve our mission of creating great experiences with great art for everyone,” said Nannette Maciejunes, Columbus Museum of Art executive director. “PNC’s investment in Free Sundays clearly illustrates their commitment to the community they serve.”
