The Brush Pals Program was developed to provide creative opportunities to the community and has become particularly important during a global pandemic. Featuring hands-on art lessons, materials, and cards of encouragement created by Taubman staff and volunteers—this program has already impacted over 50,000 healthcare workers and first responders, retirement center residents, the Rescue Mission and Feeding Southwest Virginia families across Southwest Virginia from Wythe County to Lynchburg.
The Museum serves 1,600 students, seniors, and healthcare workers per week with these interactive worksheets and art kits that dive deeper into the exhibitions on view at the Museum, while exploring various art theories and practices—effectively bringing the Museum into the community when coming to the Museum is not an option or difficult.
It is well known that art can provide healing—something that is needed now more than ever. You can help the Museum in providing colorful, meaningful opportunities of expression and relief by donating today. Your donation will ensure that each Brush Pals participant receives quality materials and helps the Museum extend its reach to serve more patrons and organizations in our community.
