For over one hundred years the Society has been a center where illustrators can share their ideas, exhibit their work and contribute to the community at large. It is also home to a unique Permanent Collections, a brisk schedule of exhibits and a wide range of educational programs all offered to the public year-round. This is all preserved with the generous support of our friends and members.

There are a variety of membership levels to choose from, each with its own prerequisites, application process and benefits. Whether you are an Illustrator, Student, or a Friend there is a membership level right for you!
