Curators Circles: Threads

Textiles have been an integral part of the MFA’s collection since its founding in 1870. Over the years, the collection has grown into one of the most diverse and important in the world and includes examples from many cultures, ancient to modern. Through examination of objects and intimate discussions with curators, visiting experts, and collectors, explore the multifaceted world of the textile arts.

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