GETTING INVOLVED

SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE FRANKFURT is one of Europe’s premier exhibition spaces. We consider ourselves the meeting point that brings people together regardless of their walks of life, as a source of inspiration and as a place of critical reflection both on historical and current positions in art. What is more, we are a key educational institution in the Frankfurt Rhine/Main region. 

As a patron of the SCHIRN, you always have your finger on the pulse of the latest art trends; you get to know artistic personalities from the world over and become involved in issues relevant to society. The ensuing lively debate among the SCHIRN’s circle of friends and patrons is instrumental in shaping cultural life in the region. Meaning that by getting involved with the SCHIRN as a friend or patron you join us in our mission of accepting social responsibility.

KIDS JUST LOVE THE CHILDREN’S ART CLUB

Co-hosted by the SCHIRN, Städel and Liebieghaus museums, the Children’s Art Club offers children and youngsters aged between 6 and 13 the chance to explore these museums, their exhibitions and not least their own artistic talents.


For just 20 euros a year club members enjoy unlimited free admission to the SCHIRN and MINISCHIRN, the Städel and the Liebieghaus and can take part in all public events, such as children’s and family guided tours. In addition, the three museums will inform them in good time about important dates and exciting activities on offer. And four times each year, they get to take a peek behind the scenes at the SCHIRN, Städel and Liebieghaus, finding out how paintings are attached to the wall, where the lights are switched on, how artists go about their work, where the director’s office is located and how a sculpture is restored. Exclusive events and school sponsorships round out the program. Kindly sponsored by Fraport AG.
