Membership & SupportBecome a Member
When you become a DIA member, you will be helping to support one of the world's most outstanding art museums; the DIA ranks sixth in the nation and its fine arts collections are among the most comprehensive in the country. Individual contributions form a large portion of the museum's annual budget and are critical to the DIA's ongoing excellence.
Member's dues are used to support educational programs, special exhibitions, art publications which capture worldwide attention, conservation of valuable collections, crucial building improvements and many of the daily expenses involved with operating the museum. Many employers match employee's contributions. Call today for more information!
Auxiliary groups are special-interest groups for DIA members which offer behind-the-scenes experiences, private viewings of galleries and special exhibitions and extraordinary trips. Learn about the various groups, their activities and events and how to join.
