Become a Friend of Herron

While so much of the world around us continues to change, our friends of the community remain important to Herron School of Art and Design. It is support from individuals like you that helps us evolve and provide our students with the resources and support systems that help lift them up to reach their artistic and educational goals.

Today, we invite you to become a Friend of Herron by making a gift to the school's general fund. Your support will help us to emerge as a stronger and more resilient school on the other side of today's challenges.

Now is the time to invest in the visual arts. Artists, designers, educators, historians and art therapists bring new and varied facets to the forefront of equity, inclusion and diversity. Their voices and actions encourage critical dialogue and offer new perspectives on current and future social issues. With your help, Herron will continue to play a critical role within our community.

Arts patron Patty Pelizzari shares:

"I support Herron through the Friends of Herron because I believe the quality of the facilities, the faculty and the opportunities for students to get real-world experience, offer students extraordinary opportunities for success. In addition, the exhibitions and educational programming are of high quality and include diverse media, unique topics and different cultural perspectives. A remarkable place to learn about art!"

Won't you join Patty and others by becoming a Friend of Herron today? With a minimum donation of $50, you'll become an insider to what's going on with students, faculty, alumni and community partners. You will also have an opportunity, through a questionnaire that will be sent to you, to engage with the school in ways that are important to you.

  • Innovation Circle ($500 and above)
  • Inspiration Circle ($250 – $499)

You can be assured in knowing that you play an important part in the ongoing work of Herron, as our students and our faculty make the world a better place.
