'Adopt an Apostle' Donor Benefits

Are you looking to know more about Donor recognition and benefits? Your adoption of one of The Last Supper's Saints will become a fundamental tool for raising the collective consciousness about the achievements of historic women artists and Nelli in particular.

We at AWA are deeply grateful to our donors for their contributions which will support a four-year conservation project at the restorer's studio. Documentation, research and sharing Nelli’s legacy with the world are other fundamental parts of Nelli's project which will include the production of a full-feature for-television documentary, a full-color publication spotlighting discoveries made, a complete photographic campaign (still photos and video), a world-wide press campaign, diagnostic analysis and the underwriting of a conference with top international scholars and museum curators who have been studying Nelli throughout AWA’s decade-long journey to recover her oeuvre.
