Salmagundi Art Club of New York


An Invitation to Join the SALMAGUNDI RENAISSANCE
February 10, 2021

Dear Members and Friends of Salmagundi,
As we enter our 150th year, it is most rewarding to look back upon the glory of our club but it is also important to look forward to the next 150 years of Salmagundi.
In preparation for our post pandemic presence in the art world, we have been taking advantage of the recent and relative quietude to renovate and restore several rooms in our landmark building.
We are proud to show the attached images of our refurbished library and adjacent board room, both ready to host exhibitions and related receptions, or meetings and private functions as required. All of this has been achieved on a careful budget, using volunteer and staff help and donations specifically for the purpose from our members. 
We are hoping to complete a second stage of renewal, centered on our reception areas, before we re-open to full service. A list of ‘needs’ appears below and I ask all of you to consider how you can help this year. Perhaps you want to cover the full cost of a new reception desk, or a small portion? If each Member sent in just $20.00, we would exceed our required goal. 
Let’s join together to improve these areas and work to adhere to a high standard of design, elegance and sustainability.
The Salmagundi Beautification Wish List (with estimated cost to club)
New branded desk for the reception office $3,000
New security desk for main hallway (to match reception) $2,500
