Call for Participants: Blue Star Museums Program

The following message is posted on behalf of Wendy Clark, the Acting Director of Museums, Visual Arts & Indemnity for the National Endowment for the Arts.
NEA BlueStar
I’m writing to ask you to help us spread the word about the Blue Star Museums Program, which invites museums to offer free admission to active duty military personnel and their families during the summer. Last summer we surpassed our goal of 2,000 participating museums, and were proud that more than 700,000 military personnel and their families were treated to outstanding museum experiences. It may be that your institution/museum is already registered, but I felt compelled to try to spread the word to as many people as possible.
We hope it might be possible for your museum to participate, if so follow this link to sign up online. Even if your institution is already offering a similar program or already offers free admission to all, registering as a Blue Star Museum provides a national platform to showcase your museum to the military community.
If you have any questions please e-mail
