Patron Membership

Patron members are a vital link in the long tradition of philanthropy and personal involvement that is the heart of Joslyn Art Museum. Patrons have made it possible for Joslyn to enhance and expand its premier collections, exhibitions, and educational offerings. Their dedication and generosity are essential in supporting the Museum's quality programming.

Joslyn's Patron members play an integral role in the life of this Museum, sharing an enthusiasm for the arts and a firm belief in Joslyn's important role in the community. Patron members are invited to take part in unique programs, private events with scholars, and engaging activities that bring the arts to life. Help carry on the tradition started by Sarah Joslyn, the Museum's founder and first patron.
