Museum Support Groups

Museum membership offers many benefits, and one of the most interesting is the opportunity to participate in the Museum’s support groups. The Milwaukee Art Museum has seven themed support groups, which focus on specific areas within the Museum’s collection. These groups bring together people with similar interests to socialize, learn, and support the Museum in many different ways. Each group offers its members unique benefits such as educational lectures, artist talks, trips with the curators, tours of exclusive collections, and various special events.

There is room for every level of experience—whether you are just beginning to learn about art or are a veteran of the art world. Explore more below and find the group(s) that best matches your personal interests.

Participation in the Museum’s support groups is a benefit offered to Members at the Donor ($400) level or above. Members under 35 are eligible to join support groups with a Museum membership at the Dual or Family ($95) level or above. Membership in the Museum’s strategically aligned diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion (DEAI) group, the African American Art Alliance, is open to Members at the Dual or Family ($95) level or above.
