A dedicated group of individuals who are championing the power and potential of art, clay, and culture. YPC membership is for the next generation of Gardiner Museum supporters up to 40 years of age.

Become a YPC member

Launched in 2015, the Gardiner Museum’s Young Patron Circle (YPC) program offers young professionals exclusive opportunities to connect with a like-minded community of culturally-engaged individuals looking to expand their  knowledge of art, culture, and collecting, while providing philanthropic support to a world-renowned cultural institution and shaping its future.

Joining the YPC means building connections to local artists, curators, and collections; access to exclusive Patron Openings and Patron Insider 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 Miranda Disney at mirandad@gardinermuseum.com for more information.
