Being a member of the Ann Arbor Art Center means you are part of a community that supports the visual arts in Ann Arbor, and this year we are focused on strengthening that community to better serve you. Thanks to our members, we are able to provide unique visual art experiences that benefit artists, students, art enthusiasts and the community at large.
Here are a few of the many offerings you can look forward to:
- Our two annual ARTBus excursions
- Special events throughout the year designed especially for families
- Early access to class registration and special event ticket sales
- Invitation to members-only previews, events, and shopping days
- A new membership level just for artists
Through December 31st, as a current member, you will have full access to our new suite of member benefits. Effective January 1, 2016 (or upon renewal), your benefits will switch to our new program, which do not include a discount on our educational offerings. Beginning in January, you will automatically be enrolled in our new education discount program with your first class enrollment.
Now, at the Household level your membership entitles you to free admission and discounts at over 750 museums and galleries across the country with the North American Reciprocal Museum program! For participating locations click here.
I purchased my membership prior to September 2015. How will this change affect me?
Don’t worry – If you purchased your membership prior to September 2015, you will keep all of your current benefits through the end of the year plus gain full access to our new suite of member benefits. Effective January 1, 2016 all memberships will fully transition to the revised program with the launch of a new education discount program.
