The museum currently is accepting contributions for its Founder and Cornerstone Founders’ partnerships, with donation levels starting at $1,000. The names of the Founders will be displayed in perpetuity on etched glass in the museum’s lobby. The final deadline for Founders’ contributions is Sept. 15.
“The museum strives to foster appreciation for the history and cultural landscape of Coral Gables,” said Arva Moore Parks, acting director of the Coral Gables Museum. “The generous support provided by our donors allows us to bring that vision to life and help others understand the value of intelligent and thoughtful planning.”
The Coral Gables Museum celebrates the civic arts of architecture, city planning, landscape architecture, historic and environmental preservation and history — the elements that define Coral Gables. It is a true public/private partnership between the City of Coral Gables and the Coral Gables Museum Corp., a private, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. The museum will open its first major exhibitions in October.
