Curators Circles: Black Arts and Artists

Engage with visual art by artists of the African diaspora and become familiar with emerging and established artists of African descent. Programs offer exclusive access to the MFA’s collection, recent acquisitions, and current exhibitions, as well as intimate conversations with artists and curators from across the Museum. Your membership provides vital funding to support paid curatorial internships for undergraduate and graduate students who are currently enrolled in, or a recent graduate of, an academic program and self-identify as any of the following: African American, of African descent, Black, Latinx, or Afro-Latinx.

Annual membership is $1,500.*
