Visual Arts Student Membership           $5

The usual $48 rate for students is now available for just $5 to full time
visual arts students in the Lower Mainland, BC!

Through the generosity of the Audain Foundation, the Gallery's Visionary Partner for Post-Secondary Student Engagement in BC, we are offering students in full time visual arts programs, architecture, performance arts and art history programs at post-secondary institutions in British Columbia the opportunity to purchase an annual Vancouver Art Gallery membership for just $5.

Simply email to see if your institution and program qualifies and receive the same benefits as a regular Student Membership*. Visual Arts Student Memerships must be purchased in person at the Membership Desk in the Gallery Lobby. Please present your valid student ID.

This is part of a program for visual art students that will expand across British Columbia over the next five years.

*Visual Arts Student Memberships do not include complimentary guest passes.
