Friends of the Museum is hard at work organizing the 2014 Harvest Supper, the largest annual event benefiting the University of Mississippi Museum. Scheduled for Oct. 16, the event offers a unique opportunity to build community over a meal offered on the grounds of William Faulkner’s historic home, Rowan Oak.
Proceeds from the event help support numerous aspects of the museum, including acquisitions, the “Conversations” series, exhibitions, educational programming and special events. The event also helps raise awareness about the ongoing needs to maintain and operate Rowan Oak, which is one of two historic properties managed by the museum.
“Harvest Supper is a notable event in Oxford’s annual arts and cultural calendar, and its proceeds permit the museum to continue its dynamic growth and offer a wide range of arts and educational programs for our community,” said Amy Lowe Lewis, president of the Friends of the Museum. “Support and sponsorship from community leaders and businesses allow the event to dedicate its proceeds entirely to the museum. We are grateful to everyone who takes part.”
Numerous sponsorship levels are available to businesses and individuals, each offering a variety of benefits, including name recognition in event materials, event tickets and museum memberships. More information regarding sponsorships is available by calling 662-915-7073.
The University Museum, which is celebrating 75 years of exhibition and service to the community, is at the intersection of University Avenue and Fifth Street. Hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays. For more information, visit https://museum.olemiss.edu or call 662-915-7073.
