Fellows and Circles

As our highest level of supporters, NOMA’s Fellows and Circles members receive exclusive access to the museum through patron exhibition previews and other special programs.

Through their philanthropic support, Fellows and Circles members play an integral role in all that NOMA does — from presenting groundbreaking exhibitions to offering arts-integrated education programs to students across the region.

For more information, please contact Jenni Daniel, Director of Development, at jdaniel@noma.org or 504.658.4107.
