Are you inspired by the thought of belonging to a group of patrons who learn about works of art that the Museum would like to acquire? Choosing to be a part of this affinity gives you the unique opportunity to participate in the selection process of acquisition works selected by MCASD’s Curators and Collections Committee. The Annual Acquisition Celebration will be the culmination event where selected works added to the permanent collection are announced and celebrated.
Acquisition Affinity Group members must support MCASD as a member at the Wanderlust level or higher and make an additional gift of $1,000 or more to join this group. This donation is fully tax deductible and 100% supports the purchase of art to be added to the Museum’s collection.
