Since 1976 the Art Gallery of Kingsborough Community College, now the Kingsborough Art Museum (KAM), has brought exhibitions by local, national, and internationally-recognized artists to Brooklyn.  We are currently expanding our mission to include a permanent collection, a Museum Studies concentration, and renovations to our infrastructure that will enhance the experience of our students, faculty, staff, and other visitors.  If you would like to support our efforts through a tax-deductible contribution to KAM, please contact the Office of College Advancement at 718-368-4539 or click  here for more information.  Please specify clearly in your correspondence that you would like your donation to be directly applied to the Kingsborough Art Museum.

Your contribution to the Kingsborough Art Museum provides much needed support in the following areas:

-Bringing quality art exhibitions to Kingsborough

-Artist Lectures, Readings and other scholarly events  

-Improvements to KAM's gallery space

-Student outreach programs to serve the Kingsborough and local communities

Long-term goals include a modern LED lighting system, a modular wall system, and the expansion of our physical space to include a permanent collection gallery, a sculpture court, and storage/conservation facilities.

​All donors to the Kingsborough Art Museum are recognized on the Museum's Donor Wall, as well as in our exhibition brochures and other printed materials.
