The Recent Alumni Circle

The Recent Alumni Circle recognizes the Institute's graduates from the last fifteen years who make an annual gift to their alma mater in support of the students following in their footsteps. With a modest annual gift to the Institute, alumni can join the Recent Alumni Circle and receive invitations to events designed just for them, such as cocktails at a gallery or a curator-led exhibition tour. Events are hosted by recent alumni and serve to highlight their work, while providing opportunities for networking, socializing and building relationships with fellow alum. 

The Recent Alumni Circle pays tribute to the great work that recent alumni are doing within their professional fields while providing philanthropic support to the next generation of scholars. Members to the Recent Alumni Circle make a gift to the Institute at the following levels:

  • Graduates from the last 0-5 years: $75

  • Graduates from the last 5-10 years: $150

  • Graduates from the last 10-15 years: $250

the Recent Alumni Circle today!
