Corporate Membership

To be at the forefront of contemporary American art requires imagination, innovation, and commitment—the same principles required to operate a successful corporation. Corporate Membership at the Whitney Museum of American Art connects with your company at every level. From employee engagement to executive access, the Whitney provides a full range of benefits while forming a direct connection between your corporation and the arts.

Corporate Membership provides the Whitney with general operating funds which are critical to the Museum’s core activities: to execute world-class exhibitions, to implement award-winning education programs, and to conserve our permanent collection.

Corporate Members receive unparalleled access to the Whitney’s iconic collection, exhibitions, and programs, with benefits that vary by level and may include:

  • Free year-round employee admission to the Museum
  • Opportunity to host a cocktail reception or seated dinner at one of the Museum’s premier spaces for executives and clients
  • Privilege to schedule a private after-hours tour with a Curator or Teaching Fellow
  • Invitations to exclusive opening receptions, special programs, and networking events
  • Tailored and customized benefits based on your company’s needs and priorities
