Where your money goes:
Annual Fund MOF was established in 2006 on the upper floor of a commercial building in downtown Walsenburg. Annual Program costs include general programming, operational expenses, publication production, and plans to install an elevator – making MOF accessible to all who may desire to visit.Exhibition Support MOF’s permanent collection includes works that have never been seen before, kept in storage in the Museum premises. Costs to frame and mount new works as well as signage, printing, and research regarding the collection is made possible by your support. Our first visiting artist Special Exhibition took place in September 08 with Diorbhail Cameron’s Light Boxes, as example of this category of support. In 09, MOF will present an exhibition of Italian American Artists in Huerfano County, which is in its planning stages.Education Support MOF’s School-Tour Program is available for students k-12. As Walsenburg, and the surrounding school districts are economically depressed currently, your support would help to provide Cultural Education to students who would normally not be able to attend. MOF’s College and High-School Internship programs provide students the opportunity to work within a Museum setting. Our staff responsible for mentorship in this area are qualified to teach up through the University level.A Research Library for Artists and Educators including process, theory and Art History.
