Join Lux

Be Inspired. Be a Member.

Access the artistic process... See art happen.

The Membership Program at Lux Art Institute aims to cultivate awareness and discussion of contemporary art through the Lux residency program and interactions with artists and members of the visual art and design communities. Generosity from our members allows us to offer exhibits, events and programming designed to connect the public meaningfully with contemporary art.

True to our mission, Lux has instituted a Pay As You Wish admission structure that encourages wider accessibility to contemporary art and the artistic process. Though we do suggest a voluntary contribution instead, every visitor at Lux has access to the gallery spaces without an admission fee.

Here at Lux, membership goes beyond the visitor experience with exclusive access to lectures with resident artists, first looks at exhibitions through our VIP Opening Receptions, and benefits that increase at every level of participation.
