Membership Renewal

Annual Membership currently renews each year in the month you joined. In the near future, the museum plans to move toward a single yearly expiration date for all memberships. Current members will be notified regarding how each current renewal cycle will fold into the annual renewal process. We hope to make these changes and other updates to our membership program in fall 2019.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Membership Manager Chris Schaede via email or by calling 217-244-0516.

Join the Krannert Art Museum Council

All museum members are eligible to join the museum's volunteer group, the KAM Council. This group was established in 1964 to assist the museum with activities and programs. The Council has its own by-laws, committees, and governing board of offices. Council members work closely with others who share an interest in art and expand the museum's outreach to the community.
