In November 2019, the Amics put together a new collective crowdfunding campaign to acquire the Fountain of Life tapestry by Aurèlia Muñoz (Barcelona, 1926-2011), an internationally recognised Catalan artist and a pioneer of contemporary textile art.

This exceptional work can be seen as part of the exhibition Knotting the Space. Aurèlia Muñoz Donation in the modern art rooms. However, the piece was not included in the donation that the artist’s family made to the Museu Nacional in October 2019.

The Amics did not hesitate to launch a new micro-patronage campaign so that this textile art work would also remain in our museum. The Amics enthusiastically responded to the foundation’s call, and in just five weeks the artwork could be acquired, valued in 15.000 €. Was publicly presented on December 11th during the Nit dels Amics.

This action would not have been possible without the generosity of 150 individual donors. With their contributions between 20 and 1.000 €, they guaranteed the success of the campaign. To all of them we would like to thank you for your commitment to our collective heritage.

Thanks to all the patrons, today the Fountain of Life is part of the art collection of the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya!
