The Johnson Museum is a vital educational resource for Cornell faculty and students across the disciplines, while also providing access to its large collections and university resources for a community stretching far beyond campus. Your support helps us continue to offer free admission as well as a wide range of high-quality public programs.
Endowed Annual Lecture Series
The Museum currently has two endowed lectures every year, heavily publicized and attracting large audiences. An endowed lecture series would bring distinguished speakers every year, open to the campus and Ithaca communities.
Endowed Annual Symposium
The Museum often presents free symposia focused on subjects related to a current exhibition and open to the public. An annual endowed symposium would host a panel of expert speakers and attract students from a variety of disciplines.
Endowed Communications and Media Technology Sponsorship
The Museum produces a number of scholarly exhibition catalogues, distributes a Members’ newsletter, and maintains a strong web presence. This fund will allow us to continue to keep the community informed of our outstanding exhibitions, lectures, tours, concerts, and other programs, as well as report on recent Museum news and events.
$1 million (1,500 sq. ft.)
The Museum’s first designated lecture room will host the scores of lectures, symposia, concerts, demonstrations, films, and other activities that the Museum presents to the university and Ithaca communities every year. A retractable wall and advanced projection technology will provide flexibility and adaptability.
