Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the McNay Contemporaries (MC) will not host a live fundraiser as we have in years past. However, your gift is needed more than ever to support the Museum’s acquisition fund. With a gift of $250 or more, you can help further MC’s mission to acquire contemporary art for the McNay and to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of the art of today. In lieu of attending this year’s fundraiser, we insist you celebrate in your pajamas watching The Price of Everything, a Nathaniel Kahn documentary about the contemporary art world, where everything can be bought and sold.
In 2019, your contributions helped us purchase two new video works for our collection: Jennifer Steinkamp’s Botanic 3 and Martine Gutierrez’s Clubbing.
