Karolik Society fosters appreciation, understanding, and exploration of the vibrant arts of the Americas.



Named in honor of Martha and Maxim Karolik—our distinguished benefactors of decorative arts, paintings, works on paper, and folk art—Karolik Society provides a chance to connect with others who are passionate about Art of the Americas. Participants have access to unique travel opportunities, including visits to important American art fairs, museums, and private collections, as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes tours and programs led by curators and other experts in the field.

In addition to supporting Karolik Society, participants’ contributions help pay for new acquisitions and costs related to conserving, restoring, or displaying works of art.

Participation includes invitations for two people to attend programs and runs on the same annual cycle—with the same expiration date—as your MFA membership. You must be an upper-level Museum member (Membership at $750 or more; Museum Council at $600 or more), Patron, or Benefactor to join this group (see all levels and benefits of membership).
