Charter Memberships

Who are the Friends?

The Friends are community-minded members who support educational outreach, life-long learning, and meaningful encounters in appreciation of the visual arts. The dues support many public programs such as K-12 school tours, Family Days & Nights, High School Art Days, Special Exhibitions receptions, and organized adult excursions to other art venues. The Friends and Art Education are one! 

What is a Charter Membership? 

Charter members are the cornerstone of a new endeavor and you can be in from the beginning with special recognition and opportunities as the Raclin Murphy Museum comes to life! All Friends of the Snite Museum, renewing or joining from November 2022 forward, will automatically become Charter Members of the Raclin Murphy Museum, due to open in November 2023. 

Why should you become a member?

  • subscription to, and recognition in, our semi-annual Museum Magazine
  • discounts for our Art & Architecture tours and gift shop
