  • For $20, you get an individual membership (a $50 value).
  • For $30, you get a family membership (a $60 value).

With an ambitious schedule of changing exhibitions that includes more than 13,000 works of art in its various permanent and visiting collections, the Nasher Museum of Art shares with the community an opportunity to appreciate the dynamics of art through experiential learning, interaction, and observation. A one-year single, or family membership marches art aficionados under a criss-crossed glass ceiling toward collections such as Building the Contemporary Collection: Five Years of Acquisitions and Containing Antiquity. Guests also get access to current exhibitions, including The Jazz Loft Project: W. Eugene Smith in New York City, 1957–1965, a panoply of photographs and audio recordings of jazz-era writers, musicians, and artists culled from more than 1,000 rolls of film and 1,740 reels of audio recordings—all woven together into a provocative panorama of rare moments and hard-to-smell sights.

All membership options include admission and swing open the doors to programs, performing-arts events, lectures, film series, and social gatherings. A 10% discount in the museum store and café is also included, so budding Dalis can doodle robot arms onto dragons with The Boys’ Doodle Book can ride a great wave of edibles crafted from local ingredients. The one-year family membership allows free admission for two adults and children 18 and younger.

Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University

Designed by architect Rafael Viñoly, the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University not only houses precious works of art that span centuries; it is a work of art itself. Composed of five separate, rectangular volumes, the Nasher Museum compartmentalizes its 65,000 square feet of space elegantly and efficiently. Two pavilions host rotating exhibits and another pavilion contains the permanent collection. In addition, an auditorium seats 173 people and features lectures and film screenings, whereas the final pavilion houses two classrooms, in addition to the museum's store and café, where members receive discounts.
