What we've been up to...

Oral History Project
“The Voice of Witness: The Importance of Oral Histories.”

The first oral history video has been completed for the FAMoS Oral History project. The project is entitled “The Voice of Witness: The Importance of Oral Histories.”

Each year Sedona and the Verde Valley lose the genius of local artists who pass on. Oral art histories will be completed and archived in the museum to preserve a richness of detail, spontaneous reflections, and a sense of an artists character not available in written records. These videos can be used in the school systems to augment art history and art classes.

Once the museum is completed, they may be used in an educational capacity at the museum. Online sales of the videos may also help to augment funds for the museum.

WE HAVE RECEIVED A SMALL ACF GRANT TO ENABLE ONE VIDEO BUT MORE FUNDS ARE NEEDED TO CONTINUE THIS PROJECT. All donations are tax deductible.

An anonymous donor has pledged to match donations up to $25,000 for the ACF (Arizona Community Fund)  FAMoS  Building Fund.  The ACF has a proven track record of securely investing funds for nonprofits with an average annual return of 7-8%.  Donations earmarked for this Fund will be used exclusively for acquisition, building, and maintenance of the art museum.
