The Exhibition Society is a dedicated group of Museum supporters whose generosity provides the annual support necessary to ensure growth and sustainability for the Museum’s dynamic, world-class exhibition calendar.

Additional Information

    To serve the greatest need, while offering maximum flexibility, the Exhibition Society provides broad support for GRAM’s exhibitions throughout the year. The amount of monetary support needed for each exhibition varies, and the flexibility of this support enables GRAM to more efficiently plan, prepare, and deliver engaging exhibitions.

    Your gift is a unique philanthropic investment in a year-long series of exhibitions that contribute to the cultural vitality of the city. The Exhibition Society provides a base of support for exhibitions and related needs, such as shipping fees for works on loan from other institutions, research travel for curators, gallery preparations and custom-made mounts, conservation, public programming, marketing, and more.

    As a member of the Exhibition Society, you will be recognized on one or more exhibition title walls. You will also be the Museum’s special guest at exclusive events for donors who have invested in the sustainability of exhibitions and the continued longevity of the Museum.

Thank you
