Will You Help Save the Corcoran?
Friends in PoPVille,
We need your help to save one of DC’s most treasured cultural institutions – the Corcoran Gallery of Art. As many of you know, it was announced recently that the museum’s Board of Trustees is exploring selling the National Historic Landmark building that houses the Corcoran’s American art collection and the Corcoran College of Art + Design. The decision blindsided the community of artists, students, alums and other supporters who form the backbone of the institution.
Please sign our petition opposing the sale – http://chn.ge/P12SKc<br />
Recruit 20 of your friends to sign as well by by sharing the petition on Facebook and posting it on Twitter with the hashtag #SaveTheCorcoran.
Also, check out this Washington City Paper article – http://bit.ly/NiDzOB – that highlights the momentum we have created already.
There’s a better way forward than simply selling to the highest bidder. Thank you for your support.
– Save the Corcoran
