“Growing up, my grandmother enrolled me in some of the art camps here,” Dana Walton, Amarillo Museum of Art Alliance President, said. “I think my mother still has a few of the little treasures we made.”
Deana Craighead, Amarillo Museum of Art Director of Public Programs, explained the reach of the Museum’s Alliance
A program like this, obviously, requires funding, and that funding comes by way of the Amarillo Museum of Art Alliance.
“Some of our fundraiser we have is Ladd Lecture– that’s in the fall. Then we have our 12X12– also in the fall, and then, following up with Christmas Roundup– which is coming up here in a few days,” Walton said.
The Alliance works to make sure art is accessible to people in the Panhandle through school tours, classes for adults and children, summer art camps and scholarship opportunities.
