Family Art Days. San Juan Island Museum of Art, Contributed.

By the Board of Trustees of the San Juan Islands Muse­um of Art

The San Juan Islands Muse­um of Art would like to thank the staff, vol­un­teers, mem­bers, and donors of the San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion for all their sup­port and good works from March 2020 to now.

All of us suf­fered in some way dur­ing the pan­dem­ic and the teams at the com­mu­ni­ty foun­da­tion jumped into action to help our com­mu­ni­ty. What would the qual­i­ty of life on the island look like when this cri­sis passed?

The answer to that ques­tion was an impor­tant con­sid­er­a­tion in their delib­er­a­tions. They knew well that the arts edu­cate, enter­tain, enliv­en, and engage our res­i­dents, stu­dents, and artists. The com­mu­ni­ty foun­da­tion sup­port­ed and val­ued the non­prof­its in the arts and their con­tri­bu­tions. Thank you, San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foundation.

Thank you espe­cial­ly, for your gen­eros­i­ty in remem­ber­ing the art muse­um in your giv­ing. The com­mu­ni­ty foun­da­tion and the Women’s Fund made the Fam­i­ly Art Days’ Take-home Sur­vival Packs pos­si­ble for all for free.

While fam­i­lies and chil­dren were home-bound the Fam­i­ly Art Days’ packs con­tained inter­est­ing and clever projects, as well as instruc­tions and mate­ri­als for fam­i­ly fun and learning.

The bene­fac­tors give from the heart, not for acclaim and, often, we in the com­mu­ni­ty do not know whom to thank for projects and oppor­tu­ni­ties. On behalf of the art muse­um and all the fam­i­lies who ben­e­fit­ed in these last months, thank you San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foundation.
