Don’t Miss Out on Member Exclusives

Sometimes special member offers and events become available on short notice and we must communicate with you via email. Additionally, some of our most popular member events sell out quickly; using email we can let you know if additional tickets become available. For example, our recent painting parties were so popular that we added sessions, and the Gospel Brunch sold out in record time. Don’t miss out on future events; make sure that we have your email address by joining the Museum’s online community.


Members at the Friend category ($150) and above now receive advance email notification and pre-sale opportunities to purchase and reserve tickets for member events, popular lectures, and special programs. Be among the first to know and renew or upgrade your membership to the Friend category by calling the membership office at 503-276-4249.
