The Kimbell’s membership program was initiated in 1982 to provide twice-yearly programming information and invitations to exhibition openings to an expanding regional, national, and international audience. The initial program featured two categories of membership. Members at the Subscriber level received a twice-yearly Calendar magazine, and those at the Patron level received, in addition, free admission and invitations to major exhibitions. Popular from its inception, the program gained approximately 3,500 members in its first decade.
