Not a DC resident (but want to support NMWA)?

Did you know that 75% of the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ members resides outside of the DC metro area? Our members commonly cite our mission to bring recognition to the achievements of women artists as their main reason for supporting the Museum. And let’s face it – our membership benefits certainly sweeten the deal. All of our membership levels $100 and above include the North American Reciprocal Membership Program (NARM)   which translates to access to over 500 museums throughout the country, Bermuda, Canada, El Salvador, and Mexico for members. The North American Reciprocal Membership Program also extends discounts like those offered to NMWA members on purchases made on the premises in the gift shop as well as on concert and lecture tickets of the participating museums!

And just to whet your artistic appetite, here is a sampling of exhibitions at participating NARM museums:
