Membership

Why we need you

For more than 100 years, the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette has partnered with the community to celebrate the power of art to inspire, instruct, challenge, and build community through collections, exhibitions, events, educational and cultural programs. Your museum has grown and flourished because of the generous support of patrons like you. The Art Museum is a private, not-for-profit (IRS designated 501C3) organization that receives no ongoing federal, state or government funding. The museum depends on your membership, corporate sponsorships and gifts to fulfill the mission.  Your contributions are tax-deductible.

Please join or renew now to help the Art Museum:

  • Continue cultural programming,
  • Remain open to the public free of charge 7 days a week,
  • Offer first-rate exhibitions in 5 galleries, which change frequently throughout the year
  • Provide art educational opportunities and studio arts classes to the community
