We are very excited to announce our new corporate sponsorship program:
Brooks Means Business.

Created to help celebrate our landmark 100th birthday and to strengthen the museum for the next century, Brooks Means Business is for companies that recognize the importance of a world-class art museum to keeping millennial talent in Memphis and attracting the best and brightest to our city. 

We invite you to commit your company to this special 2016 centennial sponsorship launch by becoming inaugural members of Brooks Means Business. This program will help sustain us as we move into our second century of presenting Tennessee’s most dynamic exhibitions, educating our community’s youth through the power of art, and defining Memphis as a great city with world-class amenities.

As a Brooks Means Business corporate sponsor, you will be invited to attend a special networking breakfast, hosted by Brooks Executive Director Dr. Emily Ballew Neff, and be recognized as a supporter of the art museum.  Sponsorships are available at the $5,000 and $10,000 levels. 

Sponsorship Benefits


Sponsorship entitles you and your employees to exclusive benefits, bringing special insights to our world-class collection and exhibitions. It connects your company with 2,500 members, 80,000 annual visitors, and our constantly growing digital audience. 

The real reward, of course, is helping a great organization thrive, and letting your clients and employees know you support the Brooks as an amenity that helps make Memphis a world-class city.
