Art Illuminating the Spirit


Uniquely positioned within Chicago’s arts community, LUMA offers members world-renowned exhibitions and inspiring programming to illuminate the spirit through art.

Since its opening in 2005, LUMA is proud to have presented diverse programs and exhibitions, including Rodin: In His Own Words—Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation, The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama, Pilgrimage and Faith: Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam, and those in our Works on Paper Gallery, primarily by Illinois artists.

By becoming a member of LUMA, you help us to continue this tradition. Your generosity not only brings you personal benefits, but also allows us to continue to grow and expand the exhibitions, special events, and programming for which we’ve become known.

As a LUMA member you can visit the museum any time and attend opening receptions, educational programs, and most lectures free of charge. You will receive a 10 percent discount in the Museum Shop. You can also gain entrance to nearly 400 museums throughout North America through the North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) program and the ROAM program if you join at the family level or above.

We invite you to illuminate your spirit at LUMA. Become a member today!
