Painting by Childe Hassam

The Smithsonian American Art Museum, home to the nation's first federal art collection, is a dazzling testimony to the powerful tradition of public-private support. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the museum houses the world's largest and most diverse collection of American art—treasures that we hold in trust for the enjoyment of generations to come.

With your help, the museum can preserve our country's visual arts heritage. We invite you to explore the various ways of supporting the museum through membership, campaign gifts and named giving opportunities, planned giving, exhibition sponsorship, and unrestricted donations.
