Patron Membership

Patron support is vital to the mission of the Nasher Sculpture Center. While the Nasher Foundation provides basic funding for the Center’s operation through an endowment fund established by a bequest from Raymond Nasher, funding for the Nasher Sculpture Center is provided in large part by major gifts from our Patrons.

Patrons can look forward to a host of enhanced benefits, including recognition in the Nasher Sculpture Center’s entrance foyer, exclusive pre-exhibition dinner parties, arts-related educational and travel opportunities, and the exclusive opportunity to host events in the Center.

With five different Patron Circles, there’s a level of support that’s just right for everyone. Please note that Memberships take 2-3 weeks to process.
