  1. Happy New Year from the Friends of the Davison Art Center
  2. Preview of upcoming exhibitions and events in 2016 to mark on your calendar
The Friends of the Davison Art Center would like to thank you for your continued support this past year, which played a key role in our accomplishments. Here are just a few highlights from 2015:
  • We joined the North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) program and now offer our Sustaining ($100) members and above this benefit
  • Over 400 fourth graders from Middletown were exposed to the arts through docent-led tours of Wesleyan galleries 
  • We regularly showcased works from the DAC collection through faculty and student-led discussions as part of our Artful Lunch series
  • Over 300 members of the community participated in our annual event "The Big Draw: Middletown", a celebration of drawing for all ages
  • Together at our Autumn Soirée we voted on and acquired Mujer Angel, 1980, by Graciela Iturbide for the DAC collection 
  • All DAC exhibitions and related programming continued to inspire and enable connections with the Middletown community
Thank you for making everything we accomplished in 2015 possible!

With warmest wishes for the New Year,

The FDAC Board
