Philanthropic Memberships

Enrich your connection to the AGA with these memberships that include a tax-deductible, charitable donation

Join other passionate leaders who are championing arts and culture in our community.

Philanthropic memberships provide a more immersive AGA experience through:

  • exclusive events and previews
  • workshops and studio visits

  • unforgettable receptions with other art lovers

This in-depth experience enhances your knowledge of the art world and provides opportunities to engage with other patrons and members.

Jim and I have been members of Curator's Circle for 11 years. We've had many enriching experiences, from visits to studios and behind-the-scenes access to galleries, to menu tastings and more. These experiences let us learn about and engage with visual art on a much deeper level than we could have anticipated.
