Supporters of the Doris Ulmann Galleries and the Berea College Art Collection enhance our ability to carry out our mission to educate, inspire, and challenge the broader Berea College community.

Gifts of art have been fundamental to our ability to expose students and visitors to millennia of art in all media. The College Art Collection welcomes gifts of art that enrich our collection and are in keeping with our collecting priorities and commitment to excellence. If you are interested in donating art to the collection, please contact our Director, Meghan Doherty, 859.985.3083.

The Friends of the Doris Ulmann Galleries provide essential support that allows us to build the Berea College Art Collection through an annual purchase. Members join a group of individuals dedicated to supporting the arts at Berea College and are invited to special opportunities to share their passion for the arts with other like-minded individuals. Additional benefits are available at higher categories of membership.
