“Pay What You Wish Sunday” is part of the Crocker ’s commitment to provide museum access to the entire community.
“Western Health Advantage’s mission is to improve the well-being of our community and we believe that great art is crucial for a healthy community,” said Garry Maisel, president and CEO of Western Health Advantage. “We are proud to support the Crocker Art Museum because supporting the arts is a core area of emphasis in our giving guidelines as well as a personal passion for many of our employees.”
The Crocker has offered “Pay What You Wish Sunday” in the past, but the program had been interrupted due to lack of funding. “Providing free admission to everyone in the community depends on the generosity of organizations like Western Health Advantage,” said Lial A. Jones, the museum’s Mort and Marcy Friedman Director. “The Crocker is grateful to Western Health Advantage for its commitment to the museum and to promoting art in the Sacramento region.”
The first public art museum founded in the Western United States, the Crocker Art Museum was established in 1885 and remains one of the leading art museums in California.
The Crocker serves as the primary regional resource for the study and appreciation of fine art. The museum offers a diverse spectrum of special exhibitions, events and programs to augment its collections of Californian, European, Asian, African and Oceanic artworks, and international ceramics.
The Crocker Art Museum is located at 216 O St. in downtown Sacramento. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Thursdays.
