Corporate Sponsorship offers corporations extraordinary global visibility for their support of special exhibitions and important cultural programs. The Gallery tailors sponsorship benefits to meet the business objectives of each corporation.
The National Gallery of Art presents special exhibitions spanning the world and the history of art. The Gallery is known for its dedication to quality, its expertise in organizing exhibitions and other programs, its access to an international cultural network, and its visibility around the world. Corporations benefit from sponsorship in many ways.
Fund for the International Exchange of Art (FIEA)
The National Gallery of Art is in its own right a kind of diplomat: a cultural attaché who brings to America the art of foreign lands and sends abroad the best and most characteristic of our native artistic production. As the inaugurating institution of many international exhibitions, the National Gallery negotiates with foreign governments, arranges insurance, and oversees transportation, conservation, and installations. By participating in this fund, corporations further the Gallery’s mission as America’s cultural ambassador to the world.
Corporate sponsors have helped make the National Gallery both museum and classroom, from preschool programs to postgraduate fellowships.
