Our Donors

Founded in late 2020 and launched in spring 2021, BTA’s operations and initiatives are made possible through the generosity of our visionary founding funders, sponsors, partners, and patrons.

Thank you for being an essential part of our first years. Together, we’ll be able to create the changes we wish to see in art museums in our individual communities and across the country.
