Cleve Carney Art Gallery Endowment Fund

Cleve Carney and the McAninch Arts Center share a passionate conviction that art is a gift best shared with others. Their common goal: to make art accessible to everyone in the community. When the new Cleve Carney Art Gallery opens at the MAC, students and visitors of all ages will experience art in a beautiful setting on the College of DuPage campus that is close, convenient and open to the public free of charge.

Cleve has provided a significant legacy gift to the College of DuPage Foundation to establish the gallery space, a one-story addition to be built on the west side of the MAC that will bear his name and benefit generations to come. He has also donated artworks from his own extensive contemporary art collection, which will be prominently displayed throughout the College campus along with other key pieces in the College’s Permanent Art Collection.

We invite you to share in Cleve's vision and commitment to the arts community by choosing one of the investment options.

"One of the things I learned from Cleve was a sense of community. Instead of just stacking up the money, Cleve was one of those guys who believed when you get to the top of the hill, you hold a hand out and pull the next guy up." - Tony Fitzpatrick, friend and artist
