Curator Michelle Kuo giving the Artadia community a private tour of "Artist's Choice: Amy Sillmans" at the MoMA

The Artadia Council directly supports the Artadia Awards, offering increased financial and creative freedom to sustain artists’ careers and strengthen their communities. Every supporter in the Ambassador, Contemporary, National, Patron, and Director Council expands Artadia’s ability to grow the number of artists we serve.

The by-invitation Ambassador Council provides intimate access to the artists who are lauded by Artadia’s dynamic community of curatorial colleagues, and opportunities to participate in robust programming: a roster of high-quality, local and national events, offered at an accessible contribution level. Major exhibition and foundation tours, studio visits, topical forums, and private collection viewings, are enriched by sharing Artadia’s abundant resources of the creative communities in our award cities. The Ambassador Council is a space for discussion and bridge-building as colleagues who support artists daily and actively contribute to this shared endeavor.
