Introducing Curators Circles!

Launching July 1, 2018, Curators Circles take the place of the Museum’s Friends Groups and Visiting Committees, combining these groups into a new format of vibrant programming with clear opportunities for engagement, advocacy, and support. Curators Circles are open to all and provide a new home for collectors, lifelong learners, and supporters of our curatorial departments.

The annual contribution to join a Curators Circle is $1,500, which covers enrollment for two people. These funds support Curators Circles events, as well as provide for curatorial priorities such as research, travel, acquisitions, and exhibitions. As Curators Circles are a benefit of leading memberships, you must also be an MFA member one of the following levels to join:

  • MFA Member at the Sustainer Level or Leader Level ($850 and above)
  • Museum Council Member ($600 level and above; age 21 to 49)
  • Patron Program Member ($3,000 and above)

Please check back on July 1 for full programming details for the 2018–19 season and to join any or all groups online. Contact curatorscircles@mfa.org with any questions. Current Friends Group and Visiting Committee members will receive Curators Circles programming details in June.
