* The free ticket benefit for members is non-transferable; this means it is good for free admission for you only.
YBCA reserves the right to suspend or cancel this benefit if this policy is abused. Ticket availability can only be guaranteed with advance reservations, but if seating is available on the day of the event, you can certainly obtain a ticket through the Box Office. We suggest that you reserve your tickets to any event as soon as you know you’d like to attend. Under IRS guidelines, some of your contribution may be tax-deductible, based on the amount of tickets you redeem over the course of your membership. Discuss with your tax advisor for more details.
Some programs are ineligible for free or discounted admission.
YBCA rents its performance venues to a variety of local and national performing arts organizations, such as LINES Ballet, ODC, Lamplighters, et cetera. At this time, the All-Access membership does not grant free admission to programs presented by non-YBCA organizations. However, for selected performances we do occasionally offer member discounts.
** Reciprocal membership admission is through affiliation with North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) Association, Reciprocal Organization of Associated Museums (ROAM), and the Modern and Contemporary Reciprocal Program.
*** Invitations include exhibition preview tours, art fair passes, and other programs with thought-provoking artists, curators, and members of the Bay Area cultural community.
