The M. A. Martin Everist Foundation was founded by Margaret Ann Martin Everist, the visionary behind the capital campaign that made the Art Center’s current landmark architectural facility possible.
The Foundation, in order to continue Margaret Ann’s philanthropic endeavors, has supported several important Art Center projects including:
- The Margaret Ann Martin Everist Permanent Collection Gallery and Education Initiative
- The commissioning of the signature Michael Dunbar outdoor sculpture that graces the Art Center’s south lawn
- The Legacy of T. S. Martin project, which included an exhibition and catalog, reflecting on both the local and national impact of the rise of the department store in the United States in the early 1900s
