The Sackler Raises Money for New Exhibit

July 10, 2013

The Sackler Gallery raised just over $174,000 during a crowdfunding campaign to support the upcoming exhibit Yoga: The Art of Transformation, far surpassing the original $125,000 goal. The 34-day campaign was funded by 600 donors, as well as $70,000 in matching support from Whole Foods. Yoga: The Art of Transformation is the art world’s first exhibition about yoga’s visual history, according to the Sackler. The money raised during the campaign will “support the behind-the-scenes aspects of the exhibition,” according to a press release, including shipping the artwork, public lectures, concerts and yoga classes in the galleries.
