Young Patrons

Is contemporary art your job, passion, or hobby—or are you just plain curious? If so, membership to CAMH’s Young Patrons is a fantastic way to learn about arts and culture in Houston. Members enjoy a year’s worth of events that offer chances to see, create, and share contemporary art with their peers.

Past Young Patrons Highlights

CAMH’s Young Patrons launched in the 2016–17 Season with a series of exciting events. First, CAMH Director Bill Arning led members on a private tour of the 2016 Texas Contemporary Art Fair. Next, CAMH Curator Dean Daderko and visiting lecturer Veronica Roberts joined guests for a happy hour at Brooklyn Athletic Club. In the spring, Hermann Park Conservancy’s Urban Green co-hosted a Dance House Fitness class in the park’s Centennial Gardens. And finally, art advisors Sara Cain and Calia Alvarado Pettigrew led an Art Collecting 101 workshop at Jonathan Hopson Gallery.
