Make an impact

As an Art Partner you’ll see the difference your support makes to the UK’s public collections first-hand.

Our special group of patrons champion the UK’s museums and galleries in the same spirit of private philanthropy that Art Fund’s founders once did – and you’ll get to see this support in action through an exclusive programme of events, private views, studio visits and more.

I am an Art Partner because I want the impact of my support to be felt across the country, from Kirkcudbright to Plymouth and everywhere in between

Brendan Finucane QC, Chair of Art Partners

75% of Art Fund grants support museums and galleries outside of London, and our Art Partners events programme shines a light on brilliant collections across the UK.

On a recent trip to Charleston in East Sussex, Art Partners were able to hear from director Nathaniel Hepburn about the impact of Art Fund’s help to acquire the Famous Women Dinner Service, a collection of 50 hand-decorated plates by Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, and how significant these works are in showcasing the history of Charleston’s bohemian residents to visitors.
