Members Matter!

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.

The BMA Council is a distinguished group of Baltimore's most committed cultural and civic leaders. Some are renowned art collectors. Others are noted philanthropists and corporate leaders. All enjoy a special relationship with the BMA.

Members of the BMA Council, through their generous annual gifts, enable the Museum to achieve great things. Its world-famous collection, landmark building, and groundbreaking exhibitions shine even brighter because of Council support.

The benefits of Council Membership are many and include private tours, exhibition receptions, intimate dinners — and the satisfaction of strengthening this great cultural treasure.
