Members Matter!

Last year, BMA Members at all levels contributed $1.5 million towards the BMA’s $11 million dollar operating budget. From helping to preserve the BMA’s world-class collection to supporting special exhibitions, BMA Members provide vital operating funds that make it possible for everyone to experience the power of art.
