Consistent annual support from alumni and friends has played a vital role in providing flexibility to address immediate priorities and new initiatives—from ensuring all students who work in the museum are compensated, to creating our new Visitor Services Team. To Michael Bernhard and Nancy Doll, supporting to the Chazen not only enriches the University, but the greater Madison—something they have done every year for the past 17 years!
Michael, a retired psychologist in Madison, serves as a member of the Chazen’s Advisory Council. “I am honored to be a member of the Council. I can truly say we are in a ‘golden era’ in the museum’s history. We possess a stunning world-class museum space, a growing, deep, and multifaceted collection, a dynamic director, and a stellar, fully committed staff. In a city that is fast becoming a ‘best’ destination, we need and deserve a visual arts cornerstone.”
In addition to the Chazen, Michael and Nancy support other arts organizations across Madison, including the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA), where Nancy is a member of the Langer Society.
