Medici Circle – Supporters of the School of Art
Organized in 2005 as a community support group for the School of Art, the Medici Circle has the mission is to financially support and promote the School of Art, to raise scholarship funds for students enrolled in its programs, and to raise awareness about its programs, activities and successes.
Annual membership dues to the Medici Circle are $50 for individual or family memberships and $100 for a business membership. With your membership you receive announcements to exhibitions and lectures at the School of Art as well as notification of special opportunities and events such as the Medici Circle Mixers organized by the members of the Medici Circle Board of Directors.
Board Members also orchestrate the annual 5x7 Art Scholarship Fundraiser, which has come to be recognized as one of the most festive of spring fundraisers featuring great food, entertainment, and hundreds of 5x7 inch artworks to collect during the competitive “art grab.”
With funds collected from annual membership dues combined with funds raised during the annual 5x7 Art Scholarship Fundraiser, the Medici Circle has been instrumental in creating several new scholarship endowments by enticing matching funding opportunities with parties wishing to create Art endowments. As of summer 2012 Medici Circle’s efforts have generated over $200,000 in new endowments. These scholarship endowments support young artists and scholars, and will continue to do so in perpetuity.
