Support and Sponsorship

Rice Gallery exhibitions and programs receive major support from Rice Gallery Patrons and Members, The Brown Foundation, Inc., the Robert J. Card, M.D. and Karol Kreymer Catalogue Endowment, and the Leslie and Brad Bucher Artist Residency Endowment. The gallery receives partial operating support from the City of Houston and the Mid America Arts Alliance. KUHF-FM and Saint Arnold Brewing Company provide in-kind support.

Rice Gallery Patrons

The Rice Gallery Patrons are a special group of donors who provide the primary support for exhibitions. Patrons’ commitment allows Rice Gallery to commission new work by outstanding artists. Patrons’ support is recognized on Rice Gallery’s web site and all printed materials, and each year they are welcomed at a special dinner in their honor.
