June 26, 2002 The University of Virginia Art Museum is expanding the benefits it offers members. The range of benefits and privileges for various levels of membership includes reciprocal privileges at more than 100 museums across the country, discounts on various fine arts magazines, discounts at the University Bookstore and selected fine arts and humanities courses at the Charlottesville branch of the School of Continuing and Professional Studies.

At the higher levels, members enjoy discounts at some of Charlottesville’s premier restaurants, membership in the Virginia Festival Film Society and artwork sponsorship opportunities.

Members also receive invitations to special events, including the New Members Reception in October, members-only travel opportunities and advanced notice of programs and exhibitions in the museum’s biannual newsletter.

Members will be invited to the members-only reception on Friday, July 19, for the special exhibition, "Sam Abell: The Photographic Life," featuring the work of the renowned National Geographic photographer and Albemarle County resident.

The museum is conducting a major membership drive in conjunction with the exhibit. Expanded benefits are available to existing members as well as those who sign up during the drive.

Annual membership ranges from $35 for individuals and $60 for dual-family memberships to $2,500 for the Director’s Circle. University students may join for free by visiting the museum Web site and e-mailing their contact information. Gift memberships offer additional benefits, such as illustrated books and color prints.

Information about the University of Virginia Art Museum is available on-line at www.virginia.edu/artmuseum. Information about membership and how to join is available by calling Mike Alexander at (434) 243-8874 or malexander@virginia.edu.
