Support the Arts: Become A Patron

Thank You, Patrons

The Pryor Art Gallery was created through a partnership by Dr. Harold S. Pryor and the Columbia State Community College Foundation to provide students and the surrounding communities access to the visual arts. At Columbia State, our commitment to the arts is matched only by the generous support of the community. We can’t do it without you!

Pryor Art Gallery is committed to supporting local artists in our community, expanding on opportunities to collaborate with other museums and academic art collections to bring quality traveling exhibitions and broadening our students and community exposure to fine art. Your support allows Pryor Art Gallery to fund its core needs to maintain the Permanent Art Collection, while also providing necessary funding for priorities and new exhibitions that engages our audiences to think critically about the world around them.

Your generous support helps us to secure grant monies to bring exhibitions and to enlarge our audiences through advertising in our region.
