Next year we celebrate 40 years of Friendship
In January 2017, we will be celebrating 40 years of our Friends of the Royal Academy membership scheme. Founded in 1977 to support the RA Schools and exhibitions, our Friends have been an invaluable part of the Academy ever since. To mark this occasion we are delighted to announce a series of special events (listed below) which reflect on the successes of the past 40 years and look forward to the future of the RA in 2018 and beyond.
We also had an article in the recent RA Magazine where we asked Friends what being a Friend meant to them, you can read the article here.
