The Friends of the Arts Program is an annual contribution program supporting the Arts Program at UMUC. By becoming a Friend, your contribution is used to help with costs associated with presenting culturally diverse exhibitions, supplemental education programs such as lectures and workshops, conservation and preservation efforts, scholarly research, educational publications and the general maintenance of UMUC art collections. Your contribution is 100% tax deductible, and you receive a number of amenities as a contributor. Consider becoming a Friend today.
