New this year, every gift membership (purchased in-person at the Brooks) includes a poster of Carroll Cloar's popular painting Where the Southern Cross the Yellow Dog. Visit us during regular museum hours to purchase a gift membership.

Note: Gift memberships will not be processed until the gift recipient sends in their information. We will not mail or take phone orders this year. The free Carroll Cloar poster is only available with gift memberships purchased at the museum.
