The first challenge is a $10,000 'Happy Birthday' gift for the museum's 64th birthday that occurred on Nov. 29. On that day, friends of the museum were encouraged to make match- ing gifts to realize the challenge grant. More than $13,000 was received in donations, exceeding the challenge match. A second challenge pledge of $50,000 is being presented to friends of the museum as part of a month-long matching opportu- nity. All donations received by the museum during the month of December will be matched dollar for dollar, up to a total of $50,000. If both challenge pledges are matched by donors, the museum will receive a total of $120,000 that will be used toward the costs of bringing new exhibitions to the Catalina Island Museum. Some of the exhibitions scheduled include: 'Chihuly at the Catalina island Museum' Ends December 11, 2017 Dale Chihuly has become one of the most recognized artists of his time. He is credited for push- ing the boundaries of the glass medium. Previously considered a fragile material, Chihuly has taken glassblowing beyond the creation of singular symmetri- cal forms creating towering and gravity defying assembled sculp- tures. The final "Chihuly at Sunset" event, when his glass sculptures may be seen when the artwork is illuminated after dark, will be held Friday, Dec. 8, from 5 to 8 p.m. 'Jos6 Guadalupe Posada: Legendary Printmaker of Mexico' Dec. 23, 2017 - April 8, 2018 Mexican art comes to Catalina Island for the first time, celebrat- ing Mexico's most prolific artist.
