Members of the Wattis Curator's Forum 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.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has altered our ability to offer in-person events, but members will receive many benefits, including intimate virtual gatherings with invited guests, virtual studio visits, virtual exhibition previews, and more.

Most importantly, joining as a member provides a deeper and more enriching relationship with the Wattis, artists, and our community.

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