Give the Gift of Discovery
Membership to the Harry Ransom Center is more than access to a world-renowned museum and library—it is access to the creative process and inner lives of your favorite novelists, playwrights, artists, photographers, and filmmakers.
Adventure is best when shared, which is why a Ransom Center gift membership is the perfect present this holiday season. To make it even more fun, we’re including “A Fantastic Voyage into Literature, Art, Photography, Film, and Performing Arts,” a beautiful printed travelogue that will activate your recipient’s journey into the Ransom Center.
Here are six ways your gift membership will encourage discovery in 2016!
- Travel to the Elizabethan world of William Shakespeare with Shakespeare in Print and Performance (Opens December 2015)
- Receive free tickets to opening celebrations and invitations to member-only events
- Learn about contemporary photography in Look Inside: New Photography Acquisitions (Opens February 2016)
- Visit other museums for free (Sustainer-level and above; institutions part of the North American Reciprocal program)
- See the world through the eyes of a photographer with Elliott Erwitt: Home Around the World (Opens August 2016)
- Enjoy free parking and priority access to lectures with visiting authors. Past speakers have included Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan, and Nicole Krauss.
A gift membership helps the Ransom Center achieve its mission of sharing its collections with scholars, students, and the public. Your gift is fully tax-deductible. Current members receive a discount on gift memberships.
For Christmas delivery, purchase your gift membership by December 15. Questions? Call 512-232-3669.
