Members Make our Mission Possible

At Art Encounter, we believe that art should be accessible for everyone. Our members help us make that mission a reality. Not only do members receive special perks and discounts, they also help support our no-cost arts education programs for residents in senior living facilities, students in local public schools, and adults with disabilities, as well as our Evanston Mural Arts Program.

In light of current restrictions on in-person gatherings, our membership benefits now include access to exclusive online content, plus discounts on online and socially-distanced tours. Check out our new membership benefit chart below.
