As we reflect on this season, we are reminded of the importance of coming together and how enjoying museums supports our mental and physical wellness. 2021 was a momentous year for the Rice Museum, both as a unique experience and a banner year for change. The damage and closure from January’s flood allowed us time to reimagine our use of the galleries and update our historic house. We introduced new access programs that allowed more people to experience the Museum. We started work on expanding the museum experience beyond the walls of our building onto our 23-acre property. We offered free guided tours throughout the summer. We reintroduced an internship program. We were able to take our Alma Rose to the HardRock Summit in Denver to dazzle a new audience and we welcomed a record number of visitors over the summer.
None of this would be possible without your generous support. If you have been inspired by a visit to Rice Museum this year or in years past, please make a year-end contribution in any amount to sustain this special place and help us to continue to evoke excitement and awe in our community.
Thank you for joining us and for your continued support of the Museum. We wish you and yours good health and happiness this holiday season.
