Calling all IMA Members – this blog is for you! As an IMA member, you support everything the museum offers the Indianapolis community – an encyclopedic collection of more than 54,000 objects, vibrant programs and events, free general admission and more.
Your continued financial support and philanthropy is important to the community and the IMA, and we want you to know that we appreciate you.
As a thank you, we have some fantastic opportunities for you to take advantage of, May 10-16, during our first ever IMA Member Appreciation Week. Member week is your ticket to access special tours, talks and discounts all week long. I’ll tell you about a few highlights – but take a look at our full schedule of events (RSVP to reserve your spot.)
Kick-start Member Appreciation Week on Tuesday with an introduction to the IMA’s World War II-era Provenance Research Project. Annette Schlagenhauff, Associate Curator for Research, discusses the IMA’s continued efforts to research current and proposed works in our collection and publish the findings. You may recognize Annette from her articles in the IMA Magazine.
Thursday, May 13 is Member Night. Happy Hour starts at 5:30 pm, with double discounts at Nourish Café on food and beverages, including a “Member’s Special” drink. Thursday through Sunday, the Museum Store is offering an extra 20% off merchandise related to art featured in the museum’s special exhibitions and permanent collections. After happy hour, join Chelsey Fleming, co-curator of the newly-opened Ancient Art of the Mediterranean gallery for a personal tour.
