What is Circle?
Circle is a Toledo Museum of Art affinity group dedicated to inclusive and innovative programming that engages new audiences with the Museum. Being part of Circle means connecting to unique and unconventional art experiences, building stronger community relationships, and experiencing exclusive member benefits. In addition to the benefits of a Museum membership, Circle members receive added perks like discounts to ticketed events, access to Circle member-only events (and guest passes to invite a friend!), participation in Circle’s idea-sharing and program planning committees, and other extras not available through other TMA member levels.
How do I Join Circle?
Circle membership is $25 a year in addition to a TMA membership.
