Alliance of the IMA
The Alliance of the Indianapolis Museum of Art is a volunteer organization. Its purpose is to develop and support activities and projects that will stimulate public interest in the Museum, its educational programs, and collection.
The Alliance continues to bolster the Museum's reputation through their support, commitment, and dedication. Education is a major mission of the Alliance with members benefiting from involvement in programs by IMA curators and various other noted speakers. The Alliance is led by a Board of Directors and is advised by a Museum Affiliate liaison.
Founded in 1958, the Alliance of the IMA has a rich history that spans over five decades. One of the most accomplished volunteer organizations in the history of U.S. museums, the Alliance is responsible for bringing in thousands of new IMA members and raising millions of dollars for art acquisitions over the last half century.
