"At MetLife Foundation, we believe that the arts are a mainstay of vibrant, livable communities. Cultural institutions bring diverse groups of people together, create opportunities for learning and promote understanding of our world. The Foundation's support for the Rubin Museum reflects our commitment to expanding access to the arts and supporting creativity in the diverse communities we live and work in."
Dennis White, President and CEO
The Rubin Museum of Art’s corporate partners support the museum’s mission to spread awareness and appreciation for the multi-cultural connections that resonate in its exhibitions and programs, as well as vital funding for its activities and initiatives in schools and the community.
The museum offers a wide range of opportunities for corporate engagement:
Corporate Members are a distinguished group of companies from around the world that support the Rubin Museum’s annual operating needs. Corporate Members receive recognition for their support, special event opportunities and select employee benefits that range from free admission and discounts to private exhibition viewings.
The Rubin Museum’s stewardship of the art and culture from Himalayan Asia contributes to the global dialogue, offering a vision of the world that does not diffuse cultural differences, but rather empowers diverse communities. The Affinity Partners Program builds on this multicultural orientation by inviting leaders who represent particular populations from among the museum’s Corporate Members for special social networking events and programs.
Sponsorship of the museum’s educational programs, special exhibitions that attract an average of 180,000 visitors a year and a wide array of events and programs provide an exceptional opportunity for recognition and visibility.
