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. Named for James Swan (1754–1831), a pioneering Boston collector, Swan Society members seek a deeper connection with our European masterpieces, exhibitions, and art experts. Swan Society programs encourage close looking at original works of art, share current research and insights into curatorial decision-making, and stimulate dialogue between museum professionals and participants.

Contributions from every Curators Circles membership provide vital operating funds for the respective departments and curators.
