Exhibition Sponsorship

Sponsorship of an exhibition at The Met is a creative answer to specific corporate marketing objectives.

Internationally recognized for organizing and presenting art exhibitions of the highest quality, the Museum holds some 25 to 30 exhibitions per year, many of which draw hundreds of thousands of visitors from the United States and abroad.

Corporate sponsorship provides significant brand exposure across media, promotion through The Met's extensive global press network, and unparalleled access to the Museum for client and employee engagement. We welcome a dialogue on how we might build a sponsorship that is tailored to suit your company's marketing priorities.
