Ambassadors Circle

With only 4% of philanthropic dollars going to the arts and culture sector and only 2% going to women’s initiatives, help us support women artists by joining the Ambassadors Circle!

The Ambassadors Circle is a valued group of supporters at the $5,000 and $2,500 membership levels who desire deeper engagement with the Women’s Studio Workshop. Members enjoy special benefits, and the unique opportunity to join a community of like-minded philanthropists, artists, and advocates who share a vision of a society in which women’s visual art is integral to the cultural mainstream and permanently recorded in history.

An exciting annual series of events at museums and cultural institutions in New York City (detailed below) are anchored around our artists’ books. Why are artists’ books our solution to promoting women in the arts?

  • The sale of these books to mainstream institutions creates a historical record of women’s art and provides artists with a source of income.
  • Having produced over 250 limited edition artists’ books, the organization is now one of the largest publishers of artists’ books in North America.

See the list of events and join below. If you have any questions, please contact Roshana Nabi, Development Associate, at [email protected]
