Support the David C. Driskell Center
The David C. Driskell Center relies on a variety of funding sources for our programs and events. This support enables the Center to raise funds for the Annual Distinguished Lecture in the Visual Arts in honor of Prof. David C. Driskell, the C.l Sylvia and Eddie Brown Scholars Endowment, the Cladia DeMonte Lecture Series, the National Associates, and the Stephanie E. Pogue Memorial Award Endowment, so that we can enhance support for our activities.
We will also develop new funds, such as the Driskell Center's residency program for artist, arts administrators, museum professionals, and scholars of color and the Driskell Center Exhibition Series.
