Membership

Council Membership directly supports the Artadia Awards, offering increased financial and creative freedom to sustain artists’ careers and strengthen their communities. Every membership expands Artadia’s ability to grow the number of artists we serve.

Membership offers a unique year-round opportunity to engage in vibrant dialogue with a community of contemporary artists, curators, other arts professionals and art enthusiasts, through access to a roster of special virtual and in-person events: intimate artist studio experiences, Awardee presentations, on-site exhibition tours, topical forums, private collection viewings, critical events and performances, and more. Members are also invited to participate in the Artadia Network, to develop deep connections with Awardees and actively partake in their career growth.
