  • Naming Opportunities and Sponsorship:The Museum of Russian Art hosts over 50 events annually, from gallery talks and opening parties, to concerts and round table discussions. These moments enliven the art surrounding visitors. Multiple communities intersect when, for instance, TMORA hosts a leading researcher for a talk about a recent book or publication. Such was the case when Ruta Vanagaite’s presented on the Lithuanian Holocaust in December 2017, which was sponsored by the Russian American Jews in Minnesota (RAJMN) and the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC). We welcome * Institutions * Corporations, and  * Individuals to support programs and exhibitions through sponsorship and naming opportunities. Financial support is needed not just for the hosting and hospitality of guest artists and experts, but also for the publication of exhibition catalogs, the shipping, handling, and loaning of artworks, and the publicity efforts – which have led TMORA events to fill 96% of its total annual capacity.
  • Honorary & Memorial Gifts: Like all museums, The Museum of Russian Art (TMORA) is meant to be a permanent and enduring organization devoted to the appreciation of culture, history, and artistry. No matter which exhibition is on display, or what performance is bringing art to life, this place will always be committed to the highest values embodied by richness and depth of Russian art. You can contribute to this legacy by making a gift in honor or in memory of those you love. To make an honorary or memorial gift to TMORA, please make use of the “Special Note” field at the end of our regular Donate Form to identify for whom you are making the gift and whether you would like the gift and/or giver to remain anonymous.
