MUSEUM MEMBERSHIP: A Gateway to the Past, a Vision for the Future

I deem it the duty of every man to devote a certain portion of  his income
for charitable purposes, and that it is his further duty to see it so applied
as to do the most good
of which it is capable.--Thomas Jefferson


The University of Virginia Art Museum invites you to make a lasting connection with art!

  • Take time to stop and reflect on what you see.
  • Art is a journey, and we are here to provide a starting point.
  • Take a risk, see something new and different, and change your horizons and direction.
  • Travel around the world - and occasionally out of it - for we believe that art has the power to transform us, stop time, and move us at lightning speed to unimagined reaches of our imagination.
  • Inspiration is here, and we invite you to join us to find and connect with that inspiration!

  • By joining the UVAM, you become a vital element in a community of over 2,000 individuals who are committed to preserving and continuing a long tradition of learning, discussing, and enjoying art from around the world, right here in Charlottesville. 
  • You will meet others who enjoy learning about and discussing art, attend lectures and gallery talks and take trips to exciting locations.
  • Museum membership provides significant operating support that makes our exhibitions and public programs possible. 
  • With your help we will continue to pursue the goals we have outlined in our mission:

The University of Virginia Art Museum is dedicated to creating an environment 
in which our diverse constituencies can study and learn from the direct experience of works of art. 
The Museum promotes visual literacy as part of a broader, comprehensive education for all 
and seeks to enhance visitors' perceptions and understanding of world cultures 
through history and of art as an enduring human endeavor.
