Our memberships give you access to some of the most exciting contemporary art in the world through free admission and discounted tickets to our MCA Stage performances and public programs, as well as invitations to Members' Previews of major exhibitions. You also enjoy discounts in the MCA Store and on MCA dining.
As a Premier Member, you receive even more opportunities to get involved with the MCA. Free admission for additional guests as well as more guest passes allows you to share your passion for contemporary art with more people. Plus, reciprocal privileges at more than 85 museums across the country—24 of them in California and New York—gives you greater access to art across North America.
Circle Donors are among the museum’s most dedicated contributors and are passionate about the arts and Chicago’s vibrant cultural community. As a Circle Donor, you gain special access to the museum, meeting artists, curators, and collectors. You receive invitations to Circle Previews—prime opportunities to see major exhibitions before anyone else—as well as MCA events, programs, and national travel in addition to other benefits based on your level of support.
