Your new beast friends (and other important art works) need your help.
This summer at Newfields, you’ll see bears picking apples in the orchard, penguins cooling off in the IMA Galleries, and alligators sunning in garden pathways – all part of Summer Wonderland: Spectacular Creatures, on display through August 26. What you won’t see is the team of people behind the scenes who make sure they are clean, safe, and cared for.
You may have received a note from our friend the blue snail recently. (If not, be patient. Snail mail moves pretty slowly.) We hope he will inspire you to make a donation to support exhibitions and art conservation at Newfields. His message was light-hearted, but caring for the Newfield’s collection is serious business. Your support helps make sure masterpieces by Picasso, Rembrandt, and Van Gogh are here for future generations.
