The Contemporaries has defined for a new generation what it means to support the arts. Through social events rooted in appreciation of exhibitions and the collection, the Contemporaries’ vision has expanded the possibilities for what an art museum can be in the 21st century.
As a member, you have helped establish this group as influencers in the city, state, and region, and have infused the PMA with new ideas and enthusiasm. Your collective commitment to the arts has positioned the museum as an epicenter for progressive conversation, community collaboration, and cultural experiences, and you have laid the foundation for the PMA to thrive for years to come.

Please join us as we commemorate the achievements of another year with the annual Midsummer party in the David E. Shaw and Family Sculpture Park.
