In order to fulfill our vision of promoting the creation and sharing of contemporary art and social progress, the Rockbund Art Museum (RAM) has created the RAM Circle project. The project now announces an open invitation for all young practitioners and enthusiasts in the industry to join this circle of fellow peers.
RAM Circle is an important program in supporting the realization of RAM’s vision. It aims to provide a platform for young collectors, professionals and enthusiasts in the arts and related fields to exchange resources, as well as open a window into the world of art. While an annual fee is required for Circle members, to be used in the backing of exhibitions, research, education and other public projects of the museum, members will gain status as RAM patrons and be given access to related knowledge, skills and interpersonal interaction. RAM sincerely invites individuals who are passionate about art and support the museum in fulfilling its mission and social responsibility, to join the RAM Circle and become close partners of the Rockbund Art Museum. All participation and support from Circle members will be returned in kind with the most sincere thanks and rewards. The Rockbund Art Museum is an official non-profit organization registered by the Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau. All generous donations from the RAM Circle will be fully invested in supporting exhibitions, education, research and other public projects executed by the museum.
