The visitors in our galleries, artists featured in our exhibitions, students working in our art studios, and audiences engaging with us online have reminded us of the importance of our mission. We’ve made a positive impact on people’s lives.

Now you can make a difference by making a tax-deductible Annual Fund gift today. Help us keep the arts alive in our community. Thank you!

The Visionaries Circle

Our Planned Giving Society, the Visionaries Circle, honors those supporters who have designated a portion of their assets in their will or through their estate planning to benefit the Newport Art Museum. Gifts from bequests and trusts ensure our historic Museum will be here
for generations to come. Thank you for being part of our future – today.

If you have questions or have already included our Museum in your estate planning, please contact Norah Diedrich at

The Gift of Art

Our permanent collection of over 2,600 objects has grown over the years thanks to gifts of art and funding to purchase new works. Our Collection Strategy identifies artworks that would complement and augment those works already accessioned.

If you’re interested in making a bequest, promise, or outright gift of art, please send us as much information as possible, including name of the artist, date of creation, title, medium, size, and any other provenance available – a photograph of the artwork is always appreciated. Please send to Norah Diedrich at
