Sponsors are important partners that support AWM exhibits, programs and events. Sponsors receive recognition, special opportunities in the museum, and association with the nation’s only museum celebrating American writers. We invite you to have a conversation with us about a mutually beneficial partnership.
Sponsorship associates your brand with the AWM and provides targeted exposure to our socially-active, well-read audience. Benefits are customized, but generally include:
Company name/logo in the museum at gallery entrances and on screens and signage, in print and electronic communications, and in advertising and media coverage
Opportunity to use the museum for your private event, free museum passes or memberships for employees/clients, invitations to VIP events, exclusive author events for your group
The AWM’s annual fundraising event will take place on September 1, 2020 as a virtual event hosted by Peter Sagal, of NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! Sponsors will be recognized on the screen during the broadcast.
This special exhibit will explore the life, writing and influence of renowned author Ray Bradbury. The exhibit will open in early 2021 and be on view for 12 months. It will be accompanied by a series of books talks on Bradbury’s classic novel, Fahrenheit 451, as part of the NEA Big Read: Chicago.
Virtual Exhibit (Launching November 2020)
American Voices will be an online exhibit based on one of the museum’s core permanent exhibits. The virtual exhibit will include extensive information about more than 100 iconic American writers, with accompanying student curriculum.
