A unique way to engage with contemporary art and artists.

What is Pacesetters?

To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Artpace is offering a unique way to engage with contemporary art and artists with the relaunch of Pacesetters – an affinity group of contemporary art enthusiasts and emerging collectors dedicated to supporting Artpace exhibitions and promoting its residencies and programs.

Pacesetters enjoy unparalleled access to contemporary artists and an ambitious schedule of local and regional artist studio and private collection visits, as well as exclusive educational and travel opportunities.

You can join

Members will learn approaches to building art collections, network with collectors and arts industry professionals, and receive invitations and passes to special contemporary art openings and events in the United States and abroad.

Through annual dues of $250 per person, Pacesetters will provide essential funding for Artpace exhibitions in the Main Space and Hudson Galleries. Members will be invited to meet & greet events for artists exhibiting in the Main Space and Hudson galleries and enjoy exclusive opening receptions and special events throughout the year.
