Bank of America, a 2012 BCA 10 honoree, has announced its roster for the 2015 season of Museums on Us, a program that allows debit and credit cardholders of Bank of America and Merrill Lynch free admission to prominent cultural institutions on the first full weekend of every month.
“We believe the arts have the power to connect people and help local economies thrive,” said Rena DeSisto, Bank of America global arts and culture executive. “For 18 seasons, Museums on Us has provided access to unique cultural experiences across the country and brought new visitors to our partner museums.”
The program covers arts and cultural institutions, science centers and botanical gardens in 98 cities and 32 states. Over 150 institutions are participants, including recent additions such as the Brooklyn Historical Society in New York City, the National Veterans Art Museum in Chicago, and the Morris Museum of Art in Atlanta.
Bank of America’s support of cultural institutions and programs like Museums on Us makes an impact on economies and societies around the country. When you partner with local arts, you partner with the whole city.
