THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY NATIVE Arts membership program began in 1999. Currently, the museum boasts nearly 1200 members, a robust number considering its niche mission: to present, contemporary Native arts which it has undertaken almost exclusively since its inception in the early seventies.
The extraordinarily high membership retention rate, which annually hovers around 85 percent, is testament to the loyalty of the members as well as the museum's thought-provoking, world-class programming.
In spite of a difficult economy and this year's gallery closure from February through August during which time the museum relocated its permanent collection, replaced the roof and made other improvements, the museum expected membership to fall off, typical in such cases. Surprisingly the opposite happened.
New members came out of the woodwork; moreover, longstanding members stuck by the museum in record numbers, many increasing their support levels.
MoCNA would like to acknowledge its generous members for their tremendous support over the years--support never more crucial than it is now. In addition, the museum proudly recognizes the following members who upgraded their memberships by one or more giving levels this year.
