About This Project

Focus on Art! will outfit the Asheville Art Museum's new Theatre/Classroom with a projector that fits our space and needs. Our current projector is "short", which means that it is sitting in the middle of the room. We need one that will work from the projection booth!

The Theatre/Classroom is located in the Museum's new East Wing, and serves as seminar space for students of all ages, including the Museum's docents. We have college students as well as younger students in this space, meeting with our curatorial team, looking at art live and on the web, and learning from powerpoint presentations. It is also the location of the Museum's monthly film screenings, which are part of the constellation of programs that give our Museum visitors additional ways of thinking about the art in our galleries.

Project Budget:

$1,500 will buy the projector we need for the Asheville Art Museum's Theatre/Classroom.

$250 will cover the costs of installation of the projector.

$210 will cover power2give administrative costs for the Asheville Art Museum for this project.

Our total costs: $1,960
