Join as an Individual Member

Historically speaking, we’ve served institutional members for over 50 years. But we knew we were needed by folks who weren’t affiliated with our organization members, so we started an Individual Membership program in 2009.

We go above and beyond for our individual members with benefits like access to libraries, scholarships for education, and access to our studio.
