Leading property development expert, — Kenny Slaught appreciates the nation’s rich cultural heritage and trusts it should be treated as treasure to maintain and pass over to future generations. Avid advocate for the city’s heritage and arts, he has recently showcased his support for the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s “The Image More” campaign by promoting it on his blog at KennySlaught.com.
The Santa Barbara Museum of Art plays a critical role in the local community by offering educational programs and connecting residents and visitors to truly amazing works of art. The museum has recently kicked off a major renovation project that includes the launch of the Imagine More campaign, an ambitious fundraising initiative that will provide for better gallery space, more community space, necessary updates to the building, and an all-around better museum experience. The museum aims to raise $50 million in capital to achieve these goals through the Imagine More Campaign.
The project allows for the preservation of the historical character of physical building while also providing for state-of-the-art upgrades. In addition, through enhancements like seismic upgrades, both the building and the tens of thousands of pieces of art inside will be better protected. The project also creates 25 percent more gallery space to make the museum an even more important center of the Santa Barbara community. In all, the renovation project is the most comprehensive ever undertaken by the museum.
The campaign and the associated renovations will take place over the course of about six years. All changes will be completed in stages so that the museum can stay open to visitors throughout the entire process. Kenny Slaught lists four primary goals of the campaign, including Improving gallery space, increasing community space, enhancing the overall museum experience, and addressing the facility’s critical needs. He has also provided information on how to support the campaign, “People can make a cash donation directly to the campaign through the Imagine More website at campaign.sbma.net. The museum also accepts donations of stock and securities, as well as real estate and personal property, which can help sustain the campaign through the entirety of the renovation process.”
