Your contribution will be recognized in the annual report and a plaque will be placed with the corresponding recognition next to the artwork, as long as it is on exhibit in one of the galleries.

Other Sponsorship Opportunities
Institutional events are an important part of developing and accomplishing the Museum’s mission. The Gran Gala and ArteJangueo are fundraising events that showcase Puerto Rican art and local artists as well as our Permanent Collection. Summer Afternoons (every Wednesday in June and July) and Magical Afternoons (every Wednesday of December) are events aimed at families where they participate in educational activities for our younger audience integrating art and a variety of themes that change according to the season.
The Museum celebrates the beginning of Holiday Season in Puerto Rico with an Open House for Members at the beginning of December. In January, we receive the Three Kings in a celebration of our culture and for the enjoyment of the families that visit us. We work to keep alive our traditions by offering artistic and creative workshops where children can create the boxes for the grass they will pick to feed the Threes King’s camels on the night of their visit.
During Family Days, the main sponsor invites everyone to visit the Museum free of charge. Although every Family day will have free admission, each Family Day is different and customized according to the events scheduled with the support of the Sponsor to offer the visitor a unique experience.
Artist Assistance Program (PROA)
The Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico (MAPR, for its Spanish acronym) has established the Artist Assistance Program (PROA, also for its Spanish acronym) with the goal of promoting and bringing recognition to the work of professional artists born or those who reside in Puerto Rico.
This goal will be achieved through the development of services and creative projects, and through the establishment of alliances with other institutions interested in encouraging the development of our artists.
