Patron Circle + Collector Groups
In appreciation of their dedicated support of the Speed’s critical operating needs, Patron Circle members enjoy exclusive opportunities to engage with the Museum throughout the year. This includes private cocktail receptions, previews of special exhibitions, visits to collectors’ homes, tours of artist studios and more — all in addition to general member benefits.
Plus, all Patron Circle members are invited to the Annual Patron Circle Party, where the Speed celebrates all they do in support of the Museum. Previous events have included the wildly popular Silent Disco and a Prohibition-themed evening of cocktails and jazz.
For tax purposes, all but $75 of each level of Patron Circle is tax deductible. For more information, call (502) 634-2704 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
