Launched in 2015, the Gardiner’s Young Patron Circle (YPC) offers young professionals exclusive opportunities to connect with a life-minded community of culturally-engaged individuals, while providing philanthropic support to a world-renowned cultural institution.

Joining the YPC means building connections with local artists, curators, and collectors. It provides access to exclusive Patron events, and a complimentary ticket to SMASH, the Gardiner’s annual art party hosted by the YPC.

Our YPC Committee welcomes new members. Join today if you’re creative, open-minded, and committed to the arts.

We offer installment plans for YPC member fees. Please contact Lucy Beal, Manager, Membership & Volunteer Services, at lucyb@gardinermuseum.com for more information.
