Artists For Humanity’s young patrons group, The Contemporaries, serves as AFH ambassadors to the community-at-large. Contemporaries engage with the organization by helping to promote, raise awareness, and fundraise for our mission to bridge economic, racial, and social divisions by providing under-resourced urban youth with the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design.

 

Members of The Contemporaries commit to an $80 monthly contribution. 

INTRODUCING
THE CONTEMPORARIES

ANNUAL ART SUBSCRIPTION:

Curate your space with our Art Lending Library, which allows you to borrow paintings created by our teen artists! Handpick and install a painting (up to 2x3) from our archives during your annual membership. Only one painting may be borrowed at a time, but you can refresh your personal rotating AFH exhibit as many times as you’d like. We have an Open Door policy. Come see what’s new in our studios!

 

 

Membership includes the following benefits:​

ENJOY AN EXCLUSIVE CONTEMPORARIES “OPEN STUDIO”:

Inspire your friends, family and colleagues to engage with Artists For Humanity by inviting them to a one-of-a-kind Contemporaries Open Studios. Share the experience of AFH with guests in an intimate setting. We’ll provide tasty hors d'oeuvres, wine, and beer.

 

BEGIN A DESIGN COLLECTION:

Join The Contemporaries, renew your membership, and/or successfully recruit new members and take home a 6x6 collage on wood under resin, using reclaimed magazines. Each piece is original, made by our teen artists, and will add to your own personal collection of creative objects.
