Menil Contemporaries Membership

The Menil Contemporaries is a membership group for emerging patrons, collectors, and art enthusiasts—primarily in their 20s, 30s, and 40s —who share a common passion for the Menil Collection and its mission and values.

Menil Contemporaries invest meaningfully in the art spaces of the Menil and the thirty-acre neighborhood surrounding the museum.
