Invites Community to Join in Celebration of 100-Day Countdown
With only 100 days until its grand opening on April 22, 2023, the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts (AMFA) today unveiled new membership levels. The new options align with the museum’s legacy of deepening community engagement with the arts and its commitment to enhancing accessibility.
All memberships support free admission to AMFA, as well as art experiences and educational opportunities for families across the state. By joining AMFA, members help to create an inclusive cultural space that inspires community through the visual and performing arts.
Anyone who joins between now and the grand opening, as well as current members, will be honored with the title of “Legacy Member,” receiving new benefits while being a part of an unforgettable historic moment and celebration.
Every AMFA membership level receives core benefits that include free or discounted admission to AMFA programs, a 20% discount on art classes and workshops at the Windgate Art School, and a 10% discount in the restaurant and museum store.
In addition, each membership level will receive access to member-exclusive events throughout the museum’s grand opening celebrations and inaugural year.
The new AMFA membership levels are:
Member ($70/year): Core benefits for one adult and children/grandchildren 18 and under
Member Plus ($90/year): Core benefits for two adults and children/grandchildren 18 and under
Traveler ($200/year): Member plus benefits, as well as free admission at more than 1,200 cultural institutions through the North America Reciprocal Museum Association and Reciprocal Organization of Associated Museums
Benefactor ($500/year): Traveler benefits, along with two guest invites for member-exclusive events and eligibility to join and participate in hands-on arts opportunities with the Collectors Group for an additional $250. This level generously covers the cost of a family seeking financial assistance for membership.
In addition to the new membership levels, AMFA is introducing the Social Pass.
“We created this exciting option for the guest that wants to focus on the social aspects that members enjoy at AMFA,” said Spencer Jansen, Deputy Director and Director of Membership and Guest Services. “At $37 per year for a single adult, the Social Pass is a paperless option that delivers event invitations and surprise museum discounts exclusively through email.”
All memberships support free admission to AMFA, as well as art engagement and educational opportunities for families across the state. Information about increased giving levels and enhanced donor benefits is available at arkmfa.org/support.
"Membership at AMFA represents a cultural community that believes in the power of the arts to connect and inspire us all. We want the new membership offerings to make that community more accessible and inclusive than ever before," said Kayla Huffstutter, Membership Manager.
