NSLM & NMWA Reciprocal Membership Program

The National Sporting Library & Museum (NSLM) is excited to offer National Museum of Wildlife Art (NMWA) members a complimentary one-year membership. This offer is in conjunction with the exhibition Survival of the Fittest: Envisioning Wildlife and Wilderness with the Big Four, Masterworks from the Rijksmuseum Twenthe and the National Museum of Wildlife Art, curated by Dr. Adam Duncan Harris, Grainger/Kerr Director of the Carl Rungius Catalogue Raisonné, and organized by NMWA. After the exhibition opens in Jackson Hole on May 27, 2023, NSLM will be the East-Coast host venue from September 8, 2023, to January 14, 2024. This reciprocal membership opportunity will be available through the run of the exhibition at both organizations.

The NSLM, located in beautiful Middleburg, VA, is dedicated to preserving, promoting and sharing the literature, art and culture of equestrian, angling and field sports as well as advocating for the conversation of the landscape and wildlife crucial to these sports. With our shared passion for wildlife and the outdoors, as well as our fine-art collections, members of the NSLM and NMWA have the unique chance to experience all the two institutions have to offer.

In addition to free Library & Museum admission for themselves and their families, NMWA members will enjoy free access to the NSLM’s wide variety of dynamic programs (both virtual and in-person). Further member benefits include a subscription to our quarterly newsletter, first access to online exhibitions and the NSLM’s popular blog Drawing Covert, as well as a 10% discount on merchandise from the Museum store or online.
