What Heard Museum Members Are Saying


“Circles of Giving has enhanced our knowledge of native cultures and arts and introduced us to others who share the same interests and passions. It is a fun way to explore other aspects of a great museum.”

David and Mary Patino

"The Circles of Giving financially aids the programs of the Museum while providing its members with unique opportunities to experience new exhibits through the eyes of the curators."

Norma Jean-Coulter

”Circles membership is a great way to support the Museum and enhance personal enlightenment.”

Stanley and Judith Getch

”There shouldn't have to be benefits to encourage members who can support the Heard Museum at higher levels, but we do like our benefits: Special invitations, special events, discounts, subscriptions, complimentary admissions, early admissions, and on and on. These are just the cherries on the cake of supporting a fine institution we all love!”
