Like all museums, the Metal Museum inspires creativity through art. However, the Metal Museum also has the unique opportunity to inspire creativity through active art making and insights into the artistic process. Through programs for youth, adults, museum visitors, and artists of all experience levels, the Museum educates and inspires thousands of visitors each year.
When you Fund the Fire, your donation is immediately put to work to ensure these moments of inspiration and creativity remain accessible to all. From Shelby County School students to emerging artists to the Museum's apprentices, your support ensures that no matter the learner's background, a valuable and exciting experience is available to them.
$500 can provide a salary for one Metal Museum Youth Initiative participant for one semester. The Initiative teaches high-school students basic metalsmithing and business skills. To learn more about the Initiative, visit our website.
