President’s Letter

Dear Members,

January is membership month. On January 20, 1922, 45 women gathered in the museum’s boardroom to officially launch Friends of the Institute. Membership fees at that time were $2, which would be $30 in today’s dollars.

This month we begin to celebrate our centennial with engaging events scheduled throughout the year. We eagerly anticipate April, when flowers will return to the galleries for a spectacular Art in Bloom.

Through the gracious support of a loyal Friend, each member will receive a complimentary coffee-table book titled Friends for 100 Years: A Lasting Legacy.

Your $50 membership fee supports the Friends and our initiatives to support, enhance and sustain the collection, programs and influence of the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

Renewing is easy – just call 612-870-6323.

My very best,
Julie
