Curators Circles

Join us for a second year of Curators Circles!

Curators Circles provide a special opportunity for our leading members to take a deeper dive into the MFA’s collections. The program offers collection-focused programming, relationship building with curators and like-minded supporters in behind-the-scenes settings, and an optional opportunity to travel as a group each year.

Contributions from every Curators Circles membership provide vital funding for the respective departments and curators in support of their goals and ambitions including research, travel, acquisitions and exhibitions. The annual contribution to join a Curators Circle is $1,500, which entitles two people to three unique curator-led events, one combined event with all Curators Circles members, and an optional travel opportunity. As Curators Circles are a benefit of leading memberships, you must also be an MFA member at 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 45)
  • Patron Program Member ($3,000 and above)

Continuing our annual conversation series for all Curators Circles members, please mark your calendars for Monday, November 4, for an evening with Arne and Milly Glimcher, founders of the renowned Pace Gallery. The Glimchers, in conversation with Matthew Teitelbaum, Ann and Graham Gund Director, share inspiring stories of their personal and professional roots in Boston and the meaningful impact the MFA has had on their trailblazing careers.

By participating in Curators Circles, you will have a unique opportunity to play an active role in the future of the MFA. We hope you will consider joining us this season!
