powerhouse arts patrons

Discover, explore, collect, and make an impact.

Powerhouse Arts (PHA) Patrons provide critical support that will sustain PHA’s commitment to creative expression and its ambitious operations as a leading artistic fabrication facility. 

PHA Patrons have the opportunity to explore the world of creative production being nurtured at PHA, with invitations to shop sessions with featured artists and PHA directors; curator-led tours of museum exhibitions and public art installations with local cultural partners; and studio visits with collaborating artists.
