Membership Benefits

If you love the arts, love our Duke Ellington School of the Arts community and want to experience the history, legacy and magic that is Duke Ellington, then sign up for our Ellington Arts Museum subscription today!

The virtual museum will allow you to explore new innovative collaborations from our Museum Studies Department including, The Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration with our Dance Department and features from our Social Studies Department, “Agent’s of Change” monthly Zoom series covering topics rooted in social justice and youth activism. The Arts Block Blog gives students further opportunity to exhibit their artwork as well as perform, publish, and document their experience. On this curated blog you can also find teacher-guided zoom lessons, activities, and educational resources related to our exhibitions. Didn’t get a chance to catch Amahl last holiday season and looking for something virtual this holiday season? We’ve got you covered!

At only $25 a month, your general membership will give you access to early ticket release, a glimpse backstage at our previous productions, and masterclasses with some of our prestigious alumni and guest visitors. For members that want a 25% discount, you can purchase your membership for an entire year at $225.
