Appleton Announces Spring Membership Drive
April 16, 2014
The Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, is holding a spring membership drive now through the end of May.
New this year, in addition to free admission, Appleton members will receive special access to the museum with Members’ Power Hour and Appleton Store discounts.
All new members who sign up by May 31 will receive a 10 percent discount off their membership and will be entered to win one of several prizes, including two tickets to a 2015 ARTFUL Dining event, an upgrade to a Director’s Circle Membership or a 14-karat gold Murano glass necklace.
Spring is an excellent time to visit and support the Appleton Museum,” said Victoria Billig, assistant director of the museum. “In late April, the “New Art of the Loom”exhibition opens with a special preview party for Director’s Circle level members.”
In conjunction with the membership drive, the museum will host a kickoff party in May for its young members’ group. The Studio Museum members receive many exclusive benefits including free admission to the Sunday afternoon Educational Art Film Series and discounts in the Appleton Store.”
Members who join a Director’s Circle level of membership receive enrollment in the North American Reciprocal Program, providing access to more than 600 museums throughout the United States and Canada. All other levels of membership enjoy the Southeastern Reciprocal Membership Program, with a list of more than 60 leading art institutions in Florida and beyond.
Memberships can be purchased at the museum, online at AppletonMuseum.org, or by calling Colleen Harper at 352-291-4455, ext. 1831.
