Curators Circles: The Contemporaries

Explore the exciting world of the art of today through behind-the-scenes access to our collections and exhibitions, and conversations with the artists and scholars who are shaping our Museum and the contemporary art world. Programs address pressing issues of our time, creating a space for lively dialogue among enthusiasts, collectors, and curators. Your membership supports the department’s commitment to collecting and presenting art from a wide range of contexts, showcasing artists with many distinct backgrounds and lived experiences, and welcoming local, national, and global voices.

Annual membership is $1,500.* Contributions from every Curators Circles membership provide vital operating funds for the respective departments and curators.
