The Newcomb Art Department offers varied opportunities for alumni, families, and friends to support our mission and invest in the future of art education, research, programming, and exhibitions. Each academic year we host several special lectures, artist talks, exhibitions, and curatorial seminars, all free and open to the public, made possible by our benefactors. Gifts also support student and faculty research in both Art History and Studio Art. In addition our studios and classrooms consistently need support for the acquisition of tools and new technologies, essential to the production and presentation of art in the 21st century.
All gifts to Tulane's Newcomb Art Department are considered charitable donations. Contributions may be made directly to the Art Department.
