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 close looking at objects and intimate discussions with curators, visiting experts, and collectors, explore the multifaceted world of the textile arts. Generous support for Curators Circles: Threads allowed us to acquire Unbound Series 2 No. 3 by Rowland Ricketts, part of the exhibition “Fabric of a Nation: American Quilt Stories.”

Annual membership is $1,500.*
