The Renaissance Society is driven by an uncompromising commitment to artists and their ideas.

In support of this mission, the Ren’s generous community comes together at the annual RenBen to raise crucial funds that support the next year of exhibitions, publications, and programs.

These funds result in ambitious new artistic production; open scholarly and creative discourse; beautiful, lasting publications; and opportunities for us all to consider new ways of experiencing and understanding our contemporary moment.

As always, the Ren is committed to keeping all exhibitions and programs free and open to the public, and your support of the RenBen makes this possible.
