Dear Friend of Visual Music,

Center for Visual Music is celebrating its 5-year anniversary and beginning our new Membership Campaign. Our supporters and Members help make possible the success of our programs, exhibitions, preservation projects, and Research Center. Please join us to help preserve and promote Visual Music.

CVM is preserving a significant body of at-risk Visual Music films by Oskar Fischinger, Jordan Belson, Charles Dockum and many others. Our recent Fischinger and Belson DVDs have made their films more accessible to worldwide audiences, and our curated traveling programs screen historical and contemporary visual music work to audiences on three continents. Scholars, artists, educators, curators and institutions worldwide benefit from our Research Library and The William Moritz Archive.

CVM appreciates our Members' commitment and support. Welcome to CVM!

Best regards,
Cindy Keefer
