Director's Circle Membership


For over 30 years, the List Center has maintained free admission to a dynamic and esteemed program of exhibitions, programs and public art that have made it one of the world’s most prestigious and respected contemporary art institutions. 

The List Center relies on the generosity of MIT, individuals, foundations, and corporations to provide the support that enables us to maintain the standard of excellence mandated by our mission.

In addition to furthering the List’s mission, members of the Director’s Circle enjoy the benefits of belonging to the List Center community. Membership offers a deeper, expanded experience for those with an interest in contemporary art. As a member, you will gain exclusive access to the museum, exhibitions, and collections; meet compelling artists, curators and fellow collectors; and enjoy a broad array of stimulating talks, trips, and events.

Join today to support the List Center’s work and enrich your contemporary art experience.
