The International Museum of Art & Science’s 2010 Membership Drive is underway. This year we are looking forward to welcoming new families and individuals to the IMAS family as well as renewing our connection with our returning members.

It is through generous support and annual membership donations that we are able to fulfill our mission, thus making powerful and lasting changes in our community. All funds raised in this year’s membership drive will help to improve visitor experience, support member-only events and build upon existing educational programs and classes offered to members of the museum.

Visit the museum today and ask for a membership brochure; this brochure will describe all the benefits you will receive as a member, along with the various types of memberships for individuals, businesses and families. IMAS is also offering a 15 percent discount on Individual and Family Memberships for Seniors, Military Personnel, Educators, Students & Public Safety Employees. All membership contributions are 100 percent tax deductible as the museum is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Membership support is vital to the museum’s ability to grow, serve and enrich our community. If you are not a member or wish to renew your membership, please consider this your opportunity to join.

We encourage you to visit the International Museum of Art & Science several times per year to take full advantage of the variety of world-class programs and exhibits continually being presented throughout each calendar year. As part of our mission, it is our hope that each person grows a deeper appreciation for the arts and sciences, and experience another distinct lifetime quality of the Rio Grande Valley.
