From the ground up
how does a museum fit in
Salaries, Exhibits, and Programs make up the majority of our budget. The first year, we self-funded the museum with a budget of less than $10,000.
This January we received our first grant, and hope to have around $70,000 through grants this year.
Fiscally sponsored through a local arts organization, and incorporated at the state-level as a non-profit.
