    Ariana Museum: a story of donations | City of Geneva

    Why do we choose to make a donation to a museum? The exhibition “Making a donation, a matter of the heart or of the mind”with free access to the museum gallery, aims to answer them by twelve propositions which highlight some stories and accounts of donations from which the majority of the collections come.

    Philanthropy told

    Three-quarters of the museum’s works come from donations, legacies or acquisition assistance. Who are these philanthropists one day or forever? Patron, friends, artist, gallery owner, collector, art lover, heir, ordinary person or citizen, everyone has their reasons.

    Supporting a museum involves several forms and motivations. For example by enriching the collections with one or more works or by financially supporting its activities. And why do we choose to make a donation? To register its action in favor of the heritage of the community which will be transmitted as an inheritance to future generations, because of its attachment to the institution, or in memory of a loved one to whom the object belonged.
