Major donors

We are very grateful to all of our supporters, from students who have given small but meaningful gifts to our major donors. We’d like to offer a special thank you to John and Ann Doerr for their extraordinary generosity and vision. We also want to recognize Alice L. Walton who has done so much for the study and appreciation of American Art.
