We love our members! Membership at the Autry is like being part of an extended family, and Autry members share in our tradition of storytelling. Each object we conserve, preserve, and protect represents the collective story of those who have come before us, those who are here now, and those who will connect with the history of the West in the future.
Corporate Charitable Contributions
The Autry National Center thanks the many generous companies—both local and national—who support its mission to tell the diverse stories of the American West through exhibitions, lectures, theatre productions, film screenings, live music and dance performances, and hands-on children’s activities.
In a recent interview with Bank of America California State President and Autry Trustee Janet Lamkin, she shares why the bank chooses to support the Autry year after year through its charitable giving program.
The Autry presents thought-provoking exhibitions on a wide variety of subjects each year, many of which travel to other museums and venues throughout the United States. Past exhibition topics include the evolution of Yosemite, the Jewish experience inthe West, Chinese immigration during the Gold Rush, and a comparison of Southwest and Northwest Indian design and adornment.
Exhibition sponsorship is a wonderful way for your company to reach new audiences while demonstrating support of arts and culture in Los Angeles. Each exhibition sponsorship package is customized depending on your company’s sponsorship level, preferred recognition, promotional goals, employees, clients, and customers. Examples of exhibition sponsorship benefits may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Invitations to receptions and related programming
- Private behind-the-scenes tours of the collections and exhibition
- Recognition on the Autry's website and in printed materials
- Employee day at the Autry
We have many exciting exhibitions coming up and would be pleased to develop a customized exhibition sponsorship package for your company.
