We thrive with the support of friends, members, parents, and alumni.
Take your free admission one step further by joining our free membership program. Friends get special invitations to exhibition openings and artist talks, access to our monthly e-newsletter, and coupons to WCMA’s shop. Additionally, because WCMA participates in the College and University Art Museums Reciprocal Program, our Friends enjoy free admission to all of the Program’s member museums.
Some friends become WCMA Sustainers or Fellows by contributing to the museum financially each year. Your contributions help us bring scholarly, interactive, and participatory art programming to Williams and the greater community. Fellows enjoy exclusive travel opportunities—from study days to national and international trips.
