Patrons are among the Museum’s most generous annual donors and experience a shared connection to the Museum enhanced by a host of offerings that bring art into daily life. Our Patrons genuinely believe in our mission and directly support the exhibitions, installations, and films our community experiences daily. The Patron Society is an important component to advancing the Museum as a cultural resource in the Pacific Northwest.

In recognition of their generosity, Patrons have access to a host of benefits that deepen their involvement with the Museum. More information about these benefits are available below.
