SITE Forum is an intimate patron group for contemporary art collectors and art enthusiasts from around the country who support the progressive artistic vision of SITE Santa Fe and who enjoy following the process of exhibition-making and commissioning new artwork.
SITE Forum members are invited to events in Santa Fe and beyond that center around the development and support of a solo exhibition at SITE each year. The SITE Forum calendar begins each spring with a special event in Santa Fe that presents an overview of several solo exhibitions that SITE’s curatorial team are researching and developing. During this event SITE Forum members select one of these solo exhibitions to follow and support over the coming year. SITE Forum dues contributions are then directed to support and realize this exhibition.
Once an artist’s project is selected by the SITE Forum membership, additional highlights of the year include:
- a 2-3 day trip planned by SITE Director Irene Hofmann to meet the artist. During this trip, the group will visit the artist’s studio, local museums, and collections, and explore the city.
- a behind-the-scenes tour of the artist’s exhibition as it is being installed at SITE
- a special Opening Night Celebration Dinner with the artist
- a limited edition gift created by the artist for each SITE Forum member
SITE Forum dues are $5,000 (per household)
SITE Forum activities and special events are organized by SITE’s Director and Chief Curator Irene Hofmann in collaboration with Individual Giving Manager Paisley Mason and a Host Committee of SITE Board Members.
