Academy of Fine ArtsFrom the Academy of Fine Arts: The Academy has received two generous anonymous donations of $250,000 each toward the organization’s $16.6 million capital campaign to restore the historic Academy of Music Theatre. These gifts, along with others received recently, bring our total to $6.62 million. This expansion project will bring to life a nearly 800-seat performing and visual arts complex, purposed with serving our community through arts and culture. Just last month, the Academy announced a $1 million anonymous gift toward the campaign, one of the largest gifts ever made to the Academy. “Our momentum continues to build,” said George Dawson, the Academy’s chairman of the Capital Campaign. “This sets the stage for other big announcements in early June.”
