Past Projects of the Michael E. Horn Family Foundation
The Michael E. Horn Family Foundation has been blessed to support several non-profits. Here are some past projects:
Messages of Gratitude
Director - Southeast Region Fellowship Of Catholic University Students
I am deeply grateful for the philanthropic work of the Michael E Horn Family Foundation. Their generosity allows us to reach college students in the area with the message of true friendship and the message of Jesus Christ. Such generosity allows our work to be carried on to hundreds of students.
Executive Director International Bluegrass Music Museum
A central component of the mission of both the Michael E. Horn Family Foundation and the International Bluegrass Music Museum is improving the quality of life of area residents through education. Enjoying the arts as a spectator is one thing, but being involved in the arts in a more direct manner opens the door to an entirely new world. Through partnership with the Michael E. Horn Family Foundation we are able to provide a very tangible education initiative that impacts thousands of students each year, both in the classroom as well as on-site at the museum. Our work with the foundation makes this accessible to virtually every elementary student in Daviess County. We are proud to be linked together in this important work.
Owensboro Museum of Fine Arts
Patronage from the Michael E. Horn Family Foundation has ushered in a new dimension in early childhood education at the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art. With the continuing support of the foundation, Artland, an interactive art studio, was established which provides FREE art instruction for children during regular museum hours.
The large and colorful studio is fully equipped with art supplies and contains child-sized easels and design tables where children receive art instruction by local and regional artists in all the visual art media. Also included is a marionette theatre depicting historical figures which introduces children to the history of art.
The annual funding provided by the foundation offers unique educational experiences in the visual arts for thousands of children. Combined with the experience of visiting an art museum, Artland provides a quality and scope of art education unduplicated in the region.
