Make a donation to the Appleton Museum of Art! The Appleton Museum of Art works hard to provide the community with continuous, world class programming and events. Though it may be assumed that the cost of visitor admission and membership dues cover the cost of operating the museum, they only cover 5% of the museum’s annual expenditures. The Appleton relies on many sources for funding. One source is donations from individuals in the community. Donations made to the Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, directly provide the community with thoughtful, entertaining and engaging exhibitions and programs, as well as outreach to the community and schools. We couldn’t do that without your generosity.

  • Sculpture Walk & Garden: Help us kick start the second phase of our Sculpture Walk and Garden and take this scenic and dynamic space to the next level. Through generous donations made by our members and visitors, as well as funds provided by granting organizations and special endowments, our grounds currently display five large-scale pieces of public art. Sculpture pads with named bricks and pavers have been added to several works, creating a safe display area for our works of public art, as well as a stable area for visitors to have a 360 degree view of these unique outdoor works of art. Our vision is to not only add more sculpture, but to create a walkable, well-lit pathway with seating that connects them all together, educational signage at each sculpture stop and a guided walking tour accessible via our mobile app that promotes health and wellness.
