ATHICA: Athens Institute for Contemporary Art is an independent, non-profit gallery promoting and supporting innovative contemporary art and artists through exhibitions, education, and events. Support from our community and beyond has enabled us to fulfill our mission since our founding in 2002. Whether you are an artist, neighbor, or business owner, ATHICA enriches your community by bringing together contemporary artists for experience, reflection, and dialogue as well as arts education for all ages. Your continued support is essential to both sustain the creative, high-quality programming that ATHICA provides and to help us grow. In 2015, ATHICA was 100% community supported by Athens area members and sponsors. In 2016, we hope to expand the participation of local artists through a new membership program designed to increase member access to ATHICA exhibitions and programming.

All members receive entry into the annual members’ exhibition and the opportunity to rent the galleries for exhibits and events. Members joining at the $100 level and above receive additional benefits, including the option to have a free one day pop-up exhibit in Gallery B, or a free weeknight event, or an exhibition entry fee waiver, discounted rental for galleries and events, and an annual commemorative gift. Members joining at the $250 level and above are entitled to all of these opportunities as well as the choice of one item from the ATHICA store as a gift of appreciation.

Please consider supporting ATHICA at one of the following levels. Select the level that best fits your needs, complete the form, and you will be directed to PayPal to complete your transaction. You will receive a receipt from PayPal and a follow-up message from ATHICA in order to confirm your support and benefits.
