Curators Circles: Swan Society

Enjoy insider access to one of the great collections of European paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts from the medieval period through the mid-20th century. Members seek a deeper connection with our European masterpieces, exhibitions, and art experts through unparalleled opportunities to examine works of art from storage and in the galleries, learn about current research and insights into curatorial decision-making, and engage in stimulating dialogue with museum professionals. Your membership supports a variety of vital activities in the Art of Europe department. In recent years, these funds have facilitated numerous curatorial research trips, the shipping of new acquisitions and loans to the Museum, the creation of a temporary cataloging position, and much more.

Annual membership is $1,500.*
