Members receive special access to curators from around the world, studio visits and Q&As with artists, private gatherings at the most vibrant art collections in the Bay Area, and organized trips to exhibitions and studios worldwide.

Members also receive a key to our clubhouse/event space, which features a bar designed by artist Oscar Tuazon.

Gifts of any amount represent a vital support for the Wattis’s exhibitions and programs.
