Making a Difference at the Museum

Elizabeth “Betty” Miller Francis ’47 touched many lives and organizations through her philanthropy and passion for travel, the outdoors, and art. Her bequest supports an annual exhibit at the Johnson Museum, including Taking Shape: Abstraction from the Arab World, 1950s–1980s.

“Having an endowment fund to support exhibits is really critical,” says Ellen Avril, Chief Curator and the Judith H. Stoikov Curator of Asian Art. “It is something we can count on each year, gives us flexibility and nimbleness to respond to opportunities, and even if there are future budget cuts or less endowment payout, the restricted use of this fund means we can mount exhibits not only in good times, but in bad.”
