Why Join the Exhibition Society?
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.
How is My Investment Used?
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.
Exhibition Society Benefits
