Gift Membership 



There are many reasons why a MOWA membership makes the perfect gift. These are our Top 10.


1. MOWA puts art at your fingertips.
2. Make an artist or art-lover out of your friends, family, and colleagues.
3. Studio Saturdays is three hours of art-creating mayhem.
4. It’s a small price to pay for a journey through cultural history.
5. MOWA showcases insanely great art.
6. Because who needs another vanilla-scented candle?
7. The galleries are a sanctuary from the bustle of life.
8. Membership has its privileges: free admission for a year to exhibitions, programs, studios, and more!
9. Like the Medicis in Florence, generous patrons like you make art possible.
10. Meet Wisconsin artists.
