One Membership, Three Organizations

The Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, the Greater Augusta Arts Council, and the Morris Museum of Art have joined together to form a vibrant membership group for art lovers ages 21-40, called simply, Contemporaries. Benefits include membership to the Gertrude Herbert, Morris, and Augusta Arts Council; members-only, free, and discounted events; and most importantly, a lively mix of fun and relaxed settings to learn more about and foster greater appreciation of local, regional, and national art and artists.
